Argument in Group Decision Making: Explicating a Process Model and Investigating the Argument-Outcome Link.
Meyers, Renee A.; Brashers, Dale E.
Communication Monographs, v65 n4 p261-81 Dec 1998
Posits a theoretical process model of group argument. Uses the Group Valence Model and two versions of the Distribution of Valence Model to investigate argument-outcome links. Finds that both frameworks were good predictors of group outcomes, and that all argument acts tested were good predictors of group decision choices except those of disagreement-relevant intrusions.
