Effective coordination in human group decision making: MICRO-CO: A micro-analytical taxonomy for analysing explicit coordination mechanisms in decision-making groups

In: False, ed. . Springer

Presents a microanalytical taxonomy for analysis of coordination mechanisms in decision-making groups (MICRO-CO). This taxonomy applies theoretical as well as data-driven methods in order to more decisively study the effectiveness of coordination mechanisms for group decision making. It consists of 30 categories organized in three main and four medium levels, with interrater reliability testing resulting in substantial to very good agreement. Initial experiences using MICRO-CO are reported, and its limitations and benefits are discussed.
