This chapter is about mobile multimedia and its usage in group decisions. With respect to the complexity of mobile decision scenarios, this paper presents the foundation for engineering mobile group decision support systems. Mobile multimedia allows the adaptation of information technology to the increasing mobile work practice with location independent access to information resource. This spatial and temporal flexibility strongly affects group behaviour in decision scenarios. As a prerequisite for identifying the potential of mobile technology a set of indicators is identified. Using these indicators an exemplary decision process is presented and evaluated according potential for mobile support and mobile needs. Analysing the scenario leads to particular implementation requirements on interaction, spatial distribution, and temporal distribution to be respected in mobile group decision support systems.
