GOMES, Luiz Flávio Autran Monteiro; RANGEL, Luís Alberto Duncan  and  JERONIMO, Rogério Lúcio. A study of professional mobility in a large corporation through cognitive mapping. Pesqui. Oper. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.2, pp.331-344. ISSN 0101-7438.

Decisions which are made by executives in large corporations regarding professional mobility cause changes to both their personal and professional lives. This research was carried out with the aim of creating the structuring of a professional mobility problem through the use of a decision support tool, the cognitive mapping. Through the use of this tool, a decision making structure for professional mobility was developed, taking into consideration some important aspects of this process. The cognitive mapping proposed here was a problem structuring tool which leads decision makers to a greater understanding of the problem, giving them support towards good decision making in professional mobility. Through the research carried out it was possible to identify the principal factors which lead these professionals to a professional mobility decision which is as coherent and consistent as possible with the subjective aspects of their professional reality.

Keywords : cognitive mapping; decision support; professional mobility.
