Value adding intelligence and information

Magnus Hoppe


Organizations suffer not just from myopia, but also from structural and cultural inertia that makes them more reactive than active, which also hinders them from becoming fully effective. One way of explaining this is to use Simon’s (1945) ideas about how individuals are bounded in certain structures of rationality, and expanding them into areas of bounded attention and bounded interpretation. The article discusses how intelligence can be viewedas a tool for counteracting these drawbacks.
