Groupthink may still be a hazard to your organization
Groupthink is a very popular term used in literature carrying with it very negative connotations. The word is usually used to describe decisions and their resulting disasters. Groupthink is a widely studied phenomenon and has been used to explain many historical political decisions and their resulting consequences. This metaphor can lead to a better understanding how groups make their decisions, what information they used and didn’t use, what were their underlying group assumptions and what other influential factors were involved.
