Aspects of March and Simon’s (1958) subjective expected utility model and a prediction of Lee and Mitchell’s (1994) unfolding model of voluntary employee turnover were tested. A policy capturing
Anomaly handling : strategic flexibility in a complex problem-solving environment
It appears that mental set can refine the detection of perceptually relevant patterns, which can signal sudden changes in pattern that can lead to a switch from recognition-based to inferential task solution strategies and thereby confer a benefit to decision making in a task of anomaly categorisation.

Strategies of Model Construction for the Analysis of Judgment Data
It is concluded that any model for the analysis of judgment data implies the selection of a formal theory about judgments, and models satisfying construct validity seem superior in the domain of judgments and decisions.
On Heuristic and Linear Models of Judgment: Mapping the Demand for Knowledge
Research on judgment and decision making presents a confusing picture of human abilities. For example, much research has emphasized the dysfunctional aspects of judgmental heuristics, and yet, other

Comparative efficiency of informal (subjective, impressionistic) and formal (mechanical, algorithmic) prediction procedures: The clinical–statistical controversy.
Given a data set about an individual or a group (e.g., interviewer ratings, life history or demographic facts, test results, self-descriptions), there are two modes of data combination for a
Human Expertise, Statistical Models, and Knowledge-Based Systems
A comparison of human expert judgment with statistical models, particularly linear regression models, concludes that statistical techniques have been shown to be more accurate than human experts given knowledge of which variables to include in the analysis and the relevant data.


Consistency and Optimality in Managerial Decision Making
This paper reports some research, ideas, and theory about managerial decision making. The first research projects dealt with are aggregate production and employment scheduling. From this is developed

The process of capturing policies and of determining their general similarities and differences are two distinctly separate problems and have received considerably different emphasis on the literature.
Comparison of Two Approaches—Jan and Prof—for Capturing Rater Strategies
