First part of the paper tackles the basic concepts of Simon’s decisionmaking theory: rationality of decision-making and, in particular, bounded rationality, search for a satisfying solution (satisficing), heuristics, and differentiation between programmed and non-programmed decisions.

Criticisms of the Rational and Bounded Theory and Some Suggestions More than fifty years ago, Simon started a radical reform in the decision making process (Bendor, 2012, p.181). He called these the Intelligence, Design, and Choice stages.
