dc.description.abstractDecisions are made within an environmental context. This context sets the premises used to make adaptive decisions. The effective performance of any organization requires the coordination of management decision-making toward common goals. The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of structured environmental information on managerial decision-rnaking. The influence of two organizational climates, Friendly and Supportive and Impersonal and Non-Supportive, was studied using a management in-basket task. It was hypothesized that the two organizational climates would create two distinct management decisionmaking styles in subjects’ in-basket responses. The results supported this hypothesis. The results support a model of the structured information within organizations creating distinct management decisionmaking styles and behavioral sub-climates. The mechanism through which organizational climate influences management decision-making was hypothesized to be organizational -framing.
