Abstract [en]

This article is the fourth in a series that reflects upon important developments in managerial thinking and applicability today - building `upon the shoulders of giants' as it were. Here we turn to the work of H A Simon and his reflections on complexity and intuition. Specifically, we presume that it is intuitively obvious that two characteristics define the thought processes of effective executives. First, they have the ability to rationalize complex situations. Second, they sustain the capability of making or judging decisions from an apparent intuitive foundation. Reflections on complexity and intuition thus underpin the understanding of effectiveness in executives and the practical applications they might imply.
