Some Observations on Theories of Collective Decisions. Paper No. 428.
This paper discusses MacCrimmon's general theoretical framework for collective decisions, reveals the modeling for collective decisions, and presents selected descriptive research in the general area of collective decisionmaking. The intent is to stimulate research or provide insight that could have practical implications for management information system design. Although decision theory is individually oriented, as research becomes more applied, researchers will be led to the problem of collective decisionmaking. (Author/DW)
