This is particularly the case when organizations face crisis situations requiring immediate decisions. In crisis situations, decision makers have been found to limit their search for information that may help them make optimal decisions. Time constraints can contribute to a higher number of decisions that result in unethical or illegal behavior. The quality of many organizational decisions also may be limited by political "face saving" pressure. In other words, decision makers may make decisions that help them save face at work, although the resulting decisions might not be in the best interest of their organizations. Imagine, for example, how an employee might distort the available information needed to make a decision if the correct decision would jeopardize his or her job. Unfortunately, such misuses of information to support desired decisions are common. A great part of the problem -- and it is a problem, given the prevalence of decision-making groups in organizations -- is that some individuals feel inhibited by the presence of others.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
