Behavioral considerations in group support

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter highlights a series of inter-related issues that significantly affect the
success and failure of group support for decision and negotiation. The issues are
derived from the GDN experience of the author, accumulated over 40 years and
hundreds GDN interventions. While they refer to some of the well-established
literature on the topic, they are not based on formal empirical analysis. The items
in the lists all raise issues that involve behavioral considerations. In particular it
will be suggested that, notwithstanding a recent focus on microanalysis in GDN,
these topics are still worthy of greater research and debate within the GDN
research community.
