KBAM– Meeting Number 4
Today is a Wednesday, quite close to Friday's presentation... Today was our meeting number 4..which went on from 2 pm till late night (and late means really late).. I am tired and confused ..KBAM is such a huge topic... I can write a dissertation on every subtopic within KBAM. So much information but how to pick the most relevant information?? How do we know if we're in the right direction or not? Paul said be creative and we're trying to be.. we're thinking real. Yet, there is some fear whether have we done enough? Have we achieved the goal?
And then comes in elements such as group think and bias? Are we picking up information that we think we like and ignoring the ones which we dont feel strongly towards? Bias can be such a crucial factor.. Another thought, are we making decisions based on groupthinking? Sometimes, you dont even know when groupthinking is happening... you're not aware...sometimes someone says something and because you dont have any idea regarding it...you just end up saying yes.. group thinking is to an extent impacted no only by individual behavioral aspects but also by lack of information.. sometimes you dont have enough information to support or appose views..and then you fall into the trap of groupthinking...
You have to always be aware...dont make decisions without having adeqaute information..dont be intutive be rational... infact, have diverse people with different skills in your team..that way the bias and groupthink will reduce..
