Group Decision Making

Group decision making, also known as collaborative or collective decision making, is a process where individuals come together to choose a course of action. It can be a powerful tool for generating diverse perspectives, considering multiple viewpoints, and reaching solutions that wouldn’t be possible by individuals alone. However, it also presents challenges like groupthink, domination by certain members, and inefficient communication.


  • Diversity of perspectives : Groups bring together different knowledge, experiences, and skills, leading to more well-rounded decisions.
  • Increased creativity : Brainstorming and collaboration can spark innovative solutions.
  • Shared ownership : When everyone feels involved, buy-in and commitment to the decision is higher.
  • Improved learning : Members can learn from each other’s expertise and insights.
