The Power of Groups

Groups may be both a boon (for example, they statistically outperform individuals) and a bane (for example, they take too long) of decision-making. While they can systematically outperform individuals, groups are also prey to systematic bias and organizational skewing.
Consider the systematic decision-making processes of your own organization.

Using the readings for this module, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, respond to the following:

What are the group decision-making processes and structures in place at your current or with a previous employer that were designed to eliminate bias, create structure, and cultivate consistently better decisions?

Were the processes successful? Why, or why not?

How may the structure have facilitated organizational skewing?
