This paper explores the parameters of the concept of a business judgment, by examining how, if at all, the courts of England, Australia and the US (primarily Delaware) have defined directors' business judgment. It considers what a judgment is, and what kinds of decisions are business judgments; is judgment an event or a process?  is it possible to categorise different types of decisions involving business judgment? What kinds of decisions are not deferred to and why? What does it mean to designate something as a business judgment?
