Abstract: his paper builds on the theoretical discussion presented in an earlier paper (this issue) on the importance of and several problems related to participative group decision-making. A variation of how the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) can be applied to address the problems and aid participative decision-making is suggested. An empirical study in which the suggested method was tested is discussed.
