International Journal of Strategic Decision Sciences (IJSDS) Volume 6, Issue 1

Book Description

The vast amount of information that must be considered to solve inherently ill-structured and complex strategic problems creates a need for tools and techniques to help decision makers recognize the complexity of this process and develop a rational model for strategy evaluation. The International Journal of Strategic Decision Sciences (IJSDS) is a double-blind refereed journal whose focus is to promote the infusion of strategic decision-making with the analytical methods. IJSDS distinguishes itself as a business journal with an explicit focus on analytical strategic decision-making. The journal provides a publication vehicle for theoretical and empirical research as well as real-world applications and case studies. Papers published in IJSDS should not only meet high standards of research rigor and originality in decision sciences, but also embrace strategic decision-making.
