ERTAN GÜNDÜZ

Abstract:

The main object of this paper is to shed light on behaviors of organization members. Despite the general acceptance the modest empirical support for the organizational behavior assumptions of March and Simon (1958) were in need of further inspections. We build the hypothesis on interpretation of March and Simon as follows: 1- When aspirations are unsatisfied, people search until they find better, more satisfying options. Being on the same idea one could not say that - When aspirations are unsatisfied, people don’t care about the objectives of organization. 2- Organizations influence individuals primarily by managing the information and options, or “decision premises,” that they consider. In other words we may not argue that - Organizations’ decision premises consideration does not influence individuals to decide how to act. 3- Individuals find it easier and less taxing to devote limited time and energy to programmed tasks. In the same occasion one could not interpreted that - individuals acts rational and result based, they are eager to innovations (Greve, 2007: 945). To resolve confirmation a study has been conducted with a random sample of Istanbul Textile Industry. This work confirmed all three assumptions of March and Simon which set up the hypotheses. First of three sections of the study was a review on foundations of decision making in organizations. Second section checked for the consistency of March and Simon’s pioneering work in current conjuncture. And in the third section concluded as supposed they were still current.
