dc.description.abstract The importance of effective decision making in organisations has been well documented. Groups are often formed in order to collaborate skills and information and assist with decision-making. Despite the many benefits associated with groupwork, groups are also subjected to process losses such as groupthink, which in turn have a significant impact on group decision-making. Such process losses may be even more prevalent in agile software development dominated by highly cohesive, self-managing teams. The purpose of this study is to investigate group decision-making in agile software development and assess how agile practices can reduce the occurrence of group process losses. en_US
