Group Decision Center

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 Group Decision Center (GDC) can help you save time and money.

MeetingSphere Facilitated Meetings
Using technology, MeetingSphere software, and skilled facilitators, we provide group facilitation services to assist in focus groups, strategic planning, problem solving, decision-making, and consensus building. We assist you in the planning, testing, and facilitation of your next meeting, leaving you with a complete report by the end of the day.

Gather information quickly and easily from employees, members, or customers using our online survey software, Qualtrics. Our online surveys make it easy for you to collect data from a small or large group of people. Participants complete the survey electronically on their own time and demographics are easily identified through generated reports. Our versatile features allow you to direct participants to answer only applicable questions and to prompt participants if a question is skipped or answered incorrectly. The results are instantly added to group data and reports are generated automatically to include a wide range of statistics, charts, and graphs that can be customized. Data can also be exported for further analysis based on your needs.

Access to these services is FREE to NDSU faculty, staff, and students and competitively priced for area businesses and organizations.
