ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the role of intuition and rational analysis in personnel management. According to research conducted by Bill Long of Klein Associates, experienced managers intuitively follow a recognition-primed decision strategy to recognize a course of action and then use mental stimulation to evaluate it. Another research indicates that intuition can be an effective approach when the decision-maker has the relevant experience and expertise.
