Bounded rationality is the idea that rationality is limited, when individuals make decisions, by the tractability of the decision problem, the cognitive limitations of the mind, and the time available to make the decision.

Decision-makers, in this view, act as satisficers, seeking a satisfactory solution rather than an optimal one.

Herbert A. Simon proposed bounded rationality as an. Rationality is "bounded", e.g. managers seldom have access to all relevant information and must rely on a 'strategy of satisfying', that is to make the best decision on limited information.

They choose the first opportunity that seems satisfactory rather than seek the best solution. Human rationality is limited.

Herbert Simon was a remarkably fertile thinker in the social and "artificial" sciences (The Sciences of the Artificial - 3rd Edition (, first edition)).His most celebrated idea was the notion of "satisficing" rather than "optimizing" or "maximizing" in decision-making; he put forward a theory of ordinary decision-making that conformed more closely to the ways that actual people.

even boundedly rational. However, a theory of bounded rationality cannot avoid this basic mode of behavior (see section ) The concept of bounded rationality has its roots in H. Simon=s attempt to construct a more realistic theory of human economic decision making.

Such a theory cannot cover the whole area of cognitive psychology. An important lesson I learned from this book is that the simplest of tasks can have deep undiscovered complexity.

The Concept of Human Rationality in Economics and Psychology. “Economics is a part of the study of man.” Endorsing this assumption of the British economist Alfred Marshall (), which he already had quoted at the beginning of his Nobel Memorial Lecture inHerbert Simon wonders why economists and psychologists „live in very good ignorance of each other’s.

Herbert Simon made paradigm-changing contributions to the theory of rational behavior, including particularly his treatment of “satisficing” as an alternative to “maximizing” economic rationality ().It is therefore worthwhile examining his views of organizations and organizational decision-making and action — especially given how relevant those theories are to my current research.

About forty years ago, Herbert Simon challenged this view with his notion of "bounded rationality." Today, bounded rationality has become a fashionable term used for disparate views of book promotes bounded rationality as the key to understanding how real people make decisions.

First the sketch of a "behavioral model of bounded rationality" (p. 19) in the first chapter, does an excellent job of explaining why rational choice theory is severely limited in its ability to explain the behavior of most decision makers most of the time/5.Herbert Simon was an American political scientist, economist, sociologist, psychologist, and computer scientist.
