The Concerting of Decisions as a Variable in Organizational Interaction Roland L. Warren
Pages 13

It is important to attempt, at least, to find conceptual rubrics under which the wide variety of interorganizational decision-making contexts and processes can be ordered. As will be mentioned later, the conceptualization in this paper has arisen in connection with a study of interaction among organizations of a specific type, but the formulation has been kept as broad as possible, with the idea that it may apply equally to all formal organizations of whatever type. We are not sure that this is the case, and we welcome this opportunity to present some of our observations —for they can hardly be called more than that — for testing and criticism.
