Group decision-making…

Group decision-making techniques are assessment processes that assess multiple alternatives to arrive at expected outcomes. These techniques are used to generate, classify, and prioritise project or product requirements. The outcome is the resolution of future action for the project.


Various methods can be adopted…

  • Unanimity: Everyone in the group agrees on a single course of action.
  • Majority: This requires support from more than 50 percent of the members of the group to indicate the selected decision.
  • Plurality: The largest batch in the group decides for the group even if the majority is not achieved.
  • Dictatorship: One individual makes the decision for the entire group.
