SANABRIA RANGEL, Mauricio. Tempor empor emporalit alit ality y of decision-making, crisis and constructing organisational reality. Innovar [online]. 2003, vol.13, n.22, pp. 73-84. ISSN 0121-5051.
A critical analysis is made of the implications of temporary decision-making, paying special attention to non-programmed decisions, these being characteristic of when states of crisis arise in organisations. This article points out that decision-making (being a process through which an organisation constructs its particular reality) cannot be separated from processes of constituting its own systems of learning/ knowledge and organisational action. It is taken then that the decision-making process deals with historical organisation (analysis is fundamentally diachronic, even though phenomena regarding emergency leading to discontinuity are recognised) for which time is irreversible, is not determinist, is not ‘atemporal’; however, the function guiding management in which it moves is not essentially determined by time but rather by commanding its purposes and/or policies.
