Decision making processes include organizational or institutional aspects in which human judgement and reflection of the decision maker are formed. Thus, analysis of organizational behaviors in the decision making processes has been attracting increasing attention since the 1950s.

Now studies on institutional structure of the decision making processes are on a new line of research projects in the System and Decision Sciences Area of IIASA. Especially in Task 1 : Decision and Planning Theory, the project on Decision Processes and Hierarchical Structure intends to analyze institutional effects on the decision making processes and the scrutinize how the decision maker acts to balance conflicting objectives. This paper is modestly concerned with providing some basic ideas for this direction, especially for multiobjective extension of preference theory in organizational analysis. Special stresses are placed on operational meaningfulness and practical usefulness of the conceptual framework.

This paper will be presented at the Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) Conference at the University of Delaware, U.S.A., August 10-15, 1980.
