ABSTRACT
In many organizations, important decisions are often made within a group decision-making process. Teams might arrive at decisions using informal or formal processes. Competent team members employ various methods to make decisions in teams, adapting the techniques to the needs of the team goals. The effectiveness of a team's decision making is affected by factors such as its size, demographics, structure, and purpose for being formed. Outside forces of tight schedules and poorly defined goals can also have effects on team decision making. Team decision making takes advantage of the various strengths and expertise of the team's members. The team is able to generate a greater number of alternatives, provide knowledgeable consideration of each solution, and reach a superior decision than could be decided by just one individual.
