This article evaluates Herbert A. Simon’s contribution to organization theory, placing special emphasis on the idea of bounded rationality. It interprets Simon’s criticism of the orthodox version of organizational bureaucracy and extends his analysis to the institutional economics. One of Simon’s main achievements in organizational theory was analytically evaluating individual and collective behavior, clearing the way for the future studies of D. Kahneman and T. Schelling.
