Managerial and Organizational Cognition is an exploration of the latest developments in the burgeoning field of managerial and organizational cognition. From different disciplinary perspectives and diverse empirical settings, the contributors study patterns of managerial cognition. The resulting data provides rich insights into the processes and outcomes of managerial and organizational cognition. In particular the longitudinal approach reflected in the volume contributes to its impact as a grounded, practice-based analysis of cognition in organizations. Advanced students of management will be attracted to the incorporation in one cohesive volume of new theoryùempirical chapters that not only extend theoryùbut contribute to organizational outcomes and comparative methodology.
