Behavioral and institutional factors influencing divesture decisions in practice

  • Jan-Hendrik Sewing


Corporate decision-making is prone to behavioral limitations. This chapter presents several limitations relevant for the divestiture context and arranges them into a grid for analyzing organizational controls for their mitigation (Chapter 4.1). Furthermore, organizational design for divestiture decisions – including the controls intended to impose greater rationality – is suggested to be influenced by institutional factors from the organizational environment. Potentially relevant forces that shape decision-making practice over time and that could eventually result in similar organizational patterns are therefore also presented in the following (Chapter 4.2).
