Abstract: Purpose of the paper: The aim of the paper is to provide a conceptual framework within which future research into the context and use of intuition in organisational environments can proceed. Methodology: Literature review, theoretical analysis. Findings: Despite the increase in interest and research concerning intuition in the last few decades, a critical review of the literature reveals vague, multifarious, confusing, contradictory and sometimes paradoxical definitions and findings across a range of disciplines. This is partly due to the complexity of the phenomenon and its elusive nature, but also because few studies adopt an integrative approach. To address this problem, we present a conceptual framework for approaching the study of in tuition which interrogates and integrates the various disciplines culminating in a model of judgement and decision making that synthesises perspectives. We highlight the paucity of research focusing on the context and circumstances that surround the use of intuition by leaders and managers and, through a discussion of their impact, argue for a future research agenda. Implications for theory and research: The findings have important implications for judgment and decision making theory and research in managerial and other contexts. Value of the paper: The paper will be of interest to academics and researchers.
