A Procedural Justice Model of Strategic Decision-Making: Strategy Content Implications in the Multinational
Continuing the author's work in this field, this paper assesses the effect of procedural justice on the multinational's ability to formulate effective global strategies. The paper introduces information processing as an intervening concept to assess the match between the information processing requirements of multinationals' global strategic objectives and the information processing capabilities provided by the proposed procedural justice model of strategic decision-making. The underlying assumption was that if the dimensions of procedural justice facilitate the kinds of strategic information necessary to achieve the global strategic objectives of multinationals, the exercise of procedural justice can be judged to have a salutary effect on the multinational's ability to formulate the content of effective global strategies. The results are based on the experiences of 63 global strategic decision units.
