Discussion questions

Theoretical problems: When do decision-makers focus on aspirations (aggregate performance feedback), and when do they focus on beliefs regarding alternatives (performance feedback regarding choice alternatives)?

Methodological problems: How can we systematically measure and compare performance of different choice alternatives in organizations that are somewhat different (e.g., different entry modes, governance modes, investment options)?
