The DASF adopted from MS some assumptions about personal characteristics. It assumes that PEs are boundedly rational with unclear preferences, resulting in satisficing behaviour. These criteria are difficult to assess for each individual. An evaluation of the application of the criteria to identify PEs, and in particular, their foreground abilities is presented after the narrative of the case study in section 9.3.1. The general criteria, the operationalised characteristics and their application to identify the PEs of the GAAP/GFS harmonisation agenda setting process are summarised in Figure 6.1 below:

    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.
