Procedural Justice and Acceptance in Group Decision Making

Robert J. Oppenheimer, Michael A. Roberto


This article describes an experiential exercise that explores how leaders can enhance procedural justice in group decision-making processes, and thereby promote higher levels of decision acceptance. In particular, we demonstrate how to use a simple exercise to show students how two contrasting approaches to leading a group decision-making process can lead to quite different levels of commitment, understanding, and group harmony. We provide a simple explanation of how to conduct the exercise, as well as how to debrief the session by providing students with an analysis of their responses to a simple survey.
