Time pressure imposes two major dilemmas on managers’ decision-making processes. On the one hand, “modern” management translates into increasing knowledge and amount of data available; on the other hand, the fast pace required for achieving short-term results leaves managers very little time to think. The aim of this article is to analyze the decision-making process of Latin managers and to compare it with their American counterparts. Therefore, we have decided to create a complex situation in which a decision has to be made.

The results showed that, unlike the Latin colleagues, the Americans decide quickly and apply, in a very strict manner and without hesitation, the shared ethical rules.
