The purpose of this paper is to help team members and managers to improve decision-making in multidisciplinary teams.
It presents concepts which teams have used to diagnose the causes of slow or poor decision-making, and which have helped teams to agree decision-making procedures.
It is based on a programme of action research with primary and specialist community multidisciplinary teams in the UK (Ovretveit, 1993).
The paper justifies the three assumptions which underlie the proposed approach :
that effective decision-making is central to successful multidisciplinary teamwork ;
that improvements come from paying attention to both formal and informal features of team organisation ;
and that suitable formal decision-making procedures are necessary for teams to survive.
