Using qualitative analysis and a critical incident methodology the proposed paper will present the findings of an investigation into the role that the more formal, more academic ideas, theories, concepts and models about management play in the decision-making processes of practitioners. The work that will be presented will: Both present and highlight some of the limitations of the established theory in this area of interest Consider the relevance of some established theory from disciplines other than business and management Detail the findings of the first phase of the fieldwork that has been undertaken with senior managers from a variety of organisations, representing all sectors of the economy Highlight some of the currently unresolved issues that will form the basis of the second phase of the research The presentation should be of particular interest to those who are ‘specialists’ in the fields of either occupational psychology, or business and management. However ‘non-specialists’ should also find both that the material is accessible and that it resonates with their life experiences.
