Decision‐makers in organizations use dimensions implicitly or explicitly to sort strategic issues. This article compares the dimensions implied by three literatures and dimensions generated by an empirical study. While some similarities are identified, there are striking differences between what the literature assumes and what dimensions decision‐makers in the NY/NJ Port Authority use to sort issues. Implications for theories of decision‐making and interpretation in organizations are discussed.
