Herbert Simon on Cognitive Biases in Organizations

“One does not live for months or years in a particular position in an organization, exposed to some streams of communication, shielded from others, without the most profound effects upon what he knows, believes, attends to, hopes, wishes, emphasizes, fears, and proposes.”

Herbert Simon, Administrative Behavior, 1945
