Abstract

In treating information as homogeneous, prior research examining strategic decisions has left a fundamental question unanswered: Are some forms of information more influential than others? In this paper, we propose that narrative-structured information is more likely than nonnarratives to be granted attention, analyzed, recalled, and communicated in strategic decision making.
