Why is group decision making so important today?  In our increasingly complex environment, decision making becomes more and more challenging for leaders and practitioners.  Working in groups appears to be the norm because the alignment of visions and actions are critical for an organization. A leader or a group facilitator needs a supporting system to make collective thinking effective. The book, Group Decision Making: Drawing out and Reconciling Differences, written by Thomas Saaty and myself shows that the AHP is the scientific approach for supporting group processes in the current and future complex environment (Saaty & Peniwati, 2008).
