Textbook Problem

Use the Internet to identify two GSS software solutions that can be used to facilitate group decision making. Use a spreadsheet program to show a side-by-side comparison of the key features and capabilities as well as the hardware required of each software solution. Develop a set of slides using a graphics program to deliver a presentation comparing the two solutions.

Program Plan Intro

Program Explanation

Identify two GSS software solutions:

  • The two GSS software solutions that could be used for facilitating group decision making is shown below:
    • Group decision support system (GDSS).
    • GroupWare.
