Abstract: Decision making in complex and volatile business environments is still the realm of human decision makers since their knowledge and experience are paramount in making good decisions. The standard run-of-the-mill automation approaches for making decisions do not work well in these contexts. This paper investigates the use of a socially-inspired norm inference mechanism proposed in the area of multi-agent systems to assist human users to make decisions. Using simulation results the paper demonstrates that using the norm-based mechanism results in reduced failure rates in the decision making of a knowledge worker while still providing maximum flexibility for the user to choose from a range of actions to execute.
