Welcome to the GDC

Welcome to the GDC

The Group Decision Center (GDC) is a network of 30 laptop computers equipped with award-winning software that offers an easy to use, high return on investment way to improve team collaboration. The use of “virtual discussion” in the GDC maximizes the efficiency of a group by allowing everyone to share ideas simultaneously and anonymously. Achieve quick results that will help you generate decisions confidently.

Whether you are a manager of a team with communication issues, a board of directors working on a strategic plan, an organization exploring a hot-topic, or an NDSU student or faculty pursuing research, the GDC can help you save time and money. Using technology and skilled facilitators, we provide group facilitation services to assist in focus groups, strategic planning, problem solving, decision-making, and consensus building. We will assist you in the planning, testing, and facilitation of your next meeting, leaving you with a complete report by the end of the day.

The GDC gives you the option to hold face-to-face sessions, distance-remote sessions, or asynchronous work sessions utilizing the same easy-to-use tools. We can also help with the creation and distribution of online surveys utilizing Qualtrics, the industry leading survey software that offers extensive features for survey creation, distribution, and analysis.

Community Outreach

We encourage organizations to generate decisions confidently with the benefits the GDC offers. With the use of virtual discussion and surveys, the GDC can help your organization accomplish its goals quicker, easier, and more accurately than conventional meetings, paper surveys, or other electronic survey tools. We guide and facilitate you through the entire process.
