Epistemology of Optimization Models for Decision Making in Organizations

Augusto Renato Pérez Mayo, Nohemí Roque Nieto, Daniela Beatriz Salgado Arteaga


The intelligibility nucleus that subjects use for decision making in companies such as models based on nomothetic sciences and ideographic sciences has been applied to a wide range of situations within different areas of management.

We might think that we are not forecasting, but our options will be driven by the anticipation of results of actions or inactions.

All this is argued in epistemological cradles that define the direction of organizations.
