Summary SMALL GROUP DECISION MAKING is informed by the late Aubrey Fisher's own theory of decision making and his perspective (pragmatist) on communication. These perspectives give the book a strong theoretical framework on which to build an understanding of group communication. The fourth edition of this book is a thoroughly updated version, with a review of the recent scholarly literature, organizational changes for clarity and increased coverage of important topics such as NGT, leadership, conflict and ethics.
