One of the most interesting and ongoing problems in Executive Information Systems research is, “What does an executive do with the results?” At the personal level, people attempt to make sense out of a minimal amount of information by forming prototypes and constructing scenarios. At the organizational level, we often have too much information to form realistic models in addition to a multiplicity of different objects to which the information can be applied. This paper initiates a relevant development process by describing how information can be combined and applied to Executive Information Systems. Dempster’s Rule of Combination is introduced and technical methods for assessment and consensus are covered. Examples are given for voting systems and the elicitation of expert opinion
