This article aims to bring the organizational cognition approach to decision making together with a sensemaking perspective on deciding, in an endeavor to bring real people and processes into the picture to develop a more integrative understanding of how people “do decision making”—an enterprise which has both academic and practical relevance. The article begins by positioning this approach within decision-making research. It then explains the concepts of sensemaking and deciding, and sensereading and sensewrighting; explores why such skills are critical to the processes of organizational decision making; and finally, why this is an important area for future research.
