Information systems have focussed on controlling the decision-making environment, whereas in real life groups operate in an uncontrolled, asynchronous environment. In this paper we examine existing information system research on groups, analyze the role played by the process environment on the quality of group decisions, and argue the need for information systems for uncontrolled dynamic environments.
