The modern workplace in postindustrial economies is characterized by teamwork and complex projects/tasks. With the advent of agile management methods such as SCRUM and Kanban, more and more decision processes are delegated to a team instead of individual decision makers.
There is a common, popular stereotype that groups perform better than individuals. However, research in social psychology has shown that this preconception does not necessarily hold true (e.g. hidden profiles).
The goal of this BSc/MSc thesis is to review the current state-of-the-art in the area of group decision support in literature and practice (e.g. software support). The student will learn how to find, evaluate and structure information in a systematic way. In addition, the student will learn more about the foundations of group decision research.
