1 The Theoretical Level Adopting a more integrative perspective The analysis of the theoretical models used in empirical studies of SD/ CSR processes suggests that various relevant models have emerged from political, organizational and cognitive theories. These models have been used either in combination with others or in isolation to describe the decision-making process. Yet, as Gladwin et al. (1995) highlight, the concept of sustainable development should lead management research toward more integrative, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research models.

These models have been used either in combination with others or in isolation to describe the decision-making process. Yet, as Gladwin et al. (1995) highlight, the concept of sustainable development should lead management research toward more integrative, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research models. The SD/CSR process is multidimensional and can encompass several approaches simultaneously. This leads us to advocate that researchers should design their research projects using an integrative theoretical perspective: (1) regarding basic theoretical postulates, the SD/CSR process should be considered an integrative phenomenon that involves various decision-making modes; (2) regarding the global-theoretical approach, institutional and organizational theories should be combined with more cognitive theories; (3) regarding the scope of research, description and explanation should be combined within the same research project; and (4) regarding the general design of the research model, the decision-making process should be understood in terms of its context and results.
