Furthermore, that decisions do not “come from rational decisions

Allison’s organizational process model allows us to comprehend how “individual
departments and agencies are required to adhere to a standard operating
process” (Abelson, 2006). Also, Alison argues in specific
circumstances they are unable to have the “flexibility to change their
behavior” (Abelson, 2006), this is important
in international politics because we can consider limited information and misrepresentation
through institutional limitations. for instance, the Foreign Ministry is a prime example as
they focus primarily three main functions the routine information gathering, policy-making and provision of institutional
memory. In addition, the
main idea is that typical functioning methods are practically a gathering of previous
foreign policy decisions. First, governments identify the issue and make a
comparison from a problem handled from the past. Ultimately, following the same
guidelines and procedures, that potentially was successful before. Likewise,
the concept of ‘default positions’ enabling governments to avoid difficult
procedures of noting targets and cost and benefits for actions.  Moreover, international politics needs the
organizational process model because it enables us to understand that decisions
do not “come from rational decisions instead
of outputs of organizational processes” (Huda, 1969).  Governments, follow firm, “pre-established
routines that give desired output” (Huda, 1969). Then again, perhaps the model doesn’t
necessarily contribute to international politics because it has minimal focus
on optimization, instead of performance. Also, choices are restricted depending
on ‘standard operating procedures and are
very reliant on budget. Not to mention the organizational model insinuates that
there is no learning or progress visible in ‘institutionally fixed positions
and procedures’. Regardless, the organizational model does indeed accentuate
accessible and identifiable decisions in constraining circumstances. Also,
noting crucial domestic political influence.
