Abstract

Special Issue on ‘Advances in Designing Group Decision and Negotiation Processes.’ Groups and group work has long been seen to be an important aspect of both organizational and social life. Group members pool knowledge, share tasks and through negotiation agree on the best way to move forward. However, there are always difficulties including dealing with social conformity pressures, scheduling problems, and the management of content. This task is further complicated by the emergence of ‘virtual’ teams, the plethora of information and communication media, and the changing nature of organizations (for example the increased focus on Corporate Social Responsibility). As such finding ways for both managing the social life of the group (balancing conformity with ownership) as well as enhancing its analytical abilities is seen as a key component to supporting successful groups and has given rise to the field of Group Decision and Negotiation.
