|Abstract: ||One of the major problems of managerial behavior is the setting of priorities.
Time is a scarce resource and managers have to find ways to deal with the multiple tasks
that face them. This paper addresses the issue of priority-setting among tasks by
managers by proposing analogies from job-shop scheduling theory. We develop a model
that views managers employing a combination of rationality and affective judgments with a
limited processing capacity.|
