Because of <br />computational limitations, decision makers use simplified decision procedures,<br /> or “satisfies,” accepting the first simplified decision procedure rather than pursuing an optimal or perfectly rational solution (Bell et al., 1988; Simon, 1955, 1956; Watson & Buede, 1987).<br />Decision Making Model<br />
