I think this is the article that Colin referred to:

Ganz, M. (2000). Resources and Resourcefulness: Strategic Capacity in the Unionization of California Agriculture, 1959-1966. American Journal of Sociology,  105(4), 1003-1062.

I don't have a copy but I did have the reference!

It's not strictly 'psychological', but I think you would enjoy a piece by Marshall Ganz in American Journal of Sociology year 2000 (sorry, I don't have the precise reference to hand) - on decision-making in the Farmworkers Union in California. It includes a brilliant description of a surprising decision being made.

Subject: [Xmca-l]  decision-making

Does anyone know of any detailed psychological studies of how an informal group of people (preferably adults and certainly people who knew each other), make a collective decision. I have heard of studies of how juries work, which is interesting, but I would prefer something less 'artificial' and formal, perhaps in a work situation. I have read stuff about collective cognition (e.g. scientists) but I mean more ordinary decisions of daily life, not science.

Any recommendations?
