Herbert Simon: bounded rationality y teoría de las organizaciones

Herbert Simon: bounded rationality and organizations theory

Fernando Estrada ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This article evaluates Herbert A. Simon’s contribution to organization theory, placing special emphasis on the criterion of bounded rationality. Simon’s criticism of the orthodox version of organizational bureaucracy is interpreted and his analysis is extended to institutional economics. One of Simon’s main achievements in organizational theory consisted of analytically evaluating the psychology of individual and collective behaviour, thereby opening up the way for future investigation by D. Kahneman and T. Schelling.
