  In social psychology, group research (particularly on small groups) has focussed on group performance for a variety of tasks (e.g., letters to numbers problem, mathematical tasks) and the processes by which the decision is arrived at (e.g., discussion versus no discussion, aggregation of responses, decision rules used, information processing) (see review [2, 24]).Cited by: 2. As with anything, small groups have their advantages and disadvantages. Advantages of small groups include shared decision making, shared resources, synergy, and exposure to diversity.

  Second, decisions may be made by a single animal or minority of animals in a more ‘despotic’ manner. 16, 32, 33 Conradt and Roper's models show that both democratic and despotic decision-making can evolve through, and be maintained by, individual selection. 16 However, they predict that under most conditions the costs to subordinate group.   Advantages of Group Decision-Making Compared to an individual, the groups generally have a greater knowledge, expertise, & skill base to make better decisions. 2. Larger number of members provide more perspectives of the problem. 3. With larger number of group members, the participation also increases that helps reach quality decision. 4.

The shared responsibility of a group in arriving at decisions can. encourage individuals to explore seemingly unrealistic ideas and to challenge accepted ways of doing things. Individual biases and prejudices can be challenged by the,group, forcing the individual to recognise them. Finally, when the decision is made by a group rather than a single individual, implementation of the decision will be easier, because group members will be more invested in the decision. If the group is diverse, better decisions may be made, because different group members may have different ideas based on their backgrounds and experiences.
