Wood, Carolyn J.
Small Group Behavior, v20 n4 p428-48 Nov 1989
Studied joint decision-making strategies of small task group (N=8) over 15-month period. Found 4 problem areas contributing to lack of productivity: expertise, self-oriented needs, permissive operating procedures, and formal status differences. Results suggest important differences between group participants' desire to use participatory strategies and their ability to do so effectively. (Author/CM)
