Decisions are a fundamental part of life. We believe to be rational and pondered, yet, current literature in behavioural and organizational decision making suggest that economic rationality is neither a good description nor a good normative guidance for decisions. This lecture will explore how decisions are then actually made. I will argue that as human beings do not follow the models of rationality advocated by the economists, it is worth rethinking the models as oppose to trying to change our brains. Based on the literature on behavioural and organizational decision making, I will discuss three different facets of decisions: errors, lies and misunderstandings.
