Unpacking Intuition

Scholars have argued that intuition has, at long last, ‘come of age’ in the behavioural sciences. In this seminar I will provide a general introduction to the concept of intuition from a dual-processing perspective, summarize some recent advances in intuition research, explore its relevance for management and organization and outline some of the challenges faced in taking intuition research forward.
