Abstract

Preplanning for decision style, method, and membership to be used in solving a problem can help lead to solutions of high quality, acceptability, and originality. An integrative decision support system is described that is based on behavioral contingency research. This predecision model is related to other computerized approaches that can facilitate the decision process.
