To remain competitive in this global market, time to time organizations must
decide about some strategic issues, future course of action and implementation
strategies. Group decision making is always better than individual decisions
as group talent is more than that of any individual. The main purpose of
this paper is to represent a group decision making model considering the
preference of individual participants. In real life, decision making processes
are based on Yes-No voting system, which may not reflect the decision makers
real intention. This paper deals with a case study of strategic decision making
for an organization with the help of Analytic hierarchy process based group
decision making model considering preference intensity of individual voters.
The final decision is taken based on the ratio of benefit from particular criteria
to cost and associated risk involved on that particular criterion. It is observed
that this model takes care of objective as well as subjective criteria simultaneously.
One possible limitation is that all the alternatives may become unsuitable
in a particular case. This model is easy to apply as it is based on traditional
Analytic hierarchy process method. This methodology can be used in
any kind of societal selection process.
