Abstract

This study considers the mediating role of top management teams’ (TMTs) behavioral integration in exploring the relationship between the strategic decision-making process (SDMP; procedural rationality and constructive political behavior) and sustainable decision performance (decision quality and decision satisfaction). Survey data totaling 580 from the TMTs of the science and technology enterprises from first-tier cities in China were analyzed through structural equation modeling. The results indicate a positive influence of procedural rationality and constructive political behavior on sustainable decision quality and satisfaction. Behavioral integration appeared to mediate the nexus between the sustainable decision-making process and strategic decision performance. By categorizing the SDMP into two dimensions, a complete and explicit concept of the SDMP is reached, which permits practitioners to aim investments of a critical resource in realizing the full potential of decision performance in the sustainable decision performance.
