  • Date:
  • Time: 13:30 to 14:30
  • Location: Room 1.44, Maurice Keyworth Building (Business School) Seminar

Abstract

We present some ongoing research which attempts to connect more decision-making areas (e.g. individual differences in judgment and decision-making – JDM, behavioural decision-making – BDM, decision-making competence – DMC, debiasing) to I/O psychology domain. During the seminar we try will to answer questions such as: Can organizational assessment benefit from studying individual differences in JDM? Is debiasing an effective training method for improving job performance? Which organizational and decision-making theories can help to develop a more integrated and combined research? How some BDM models (e.g. theory of planned behaviour) can be used for predicting organizational behaviours (e.g. counterproductive behaviour, prosocial behaviour, job crafting)? With regards to such research aim we present some solutions as well as limits that we have developed and encountered during our research activity.
