Many teams and groups fallen into a democratic trap in which the majority of the vote will win despite. This was one of the case we found to be very interesting. The reason was because sometime the different for ones for choice a and b is so minimal and that three vote of that might not even be worth as much as one person with a strong viewpoints. The weighting system sometime give us a completely different perspective. Moreover, most people also disregard off the wall plan which could have high risk but sometime come with a better return because it is something not the typical. What am trying to get across is that sometime minimal sound might have the most effective which is why not evryone figure it out and should have more attention than what the majority usually disregard as not useful at all.
Today during class, we are suppose to act as a governor and make decision of what is the best possible action to get the best possible balance of awareness and popularity. At first, I was very lost and didn't knw how this could have relate to an organization at all... It was very fascinating when the trade off of manager and employee were given because it was the exact same. In this case, I believe the optimal balance (our team goal) was the maximize the awareness (effectiveness) by just keeping popularity (employee like level) at the minimal level of acceptance because it seem to be the best possible solution in the long run. Even though the result didn't come out as good as we expected, we got to understand the concept of both leadership and decesion u need to make which there are always consequences. Another reflective lesson is that people will act irrationale and in effectiveness with resources when not planned properly. This was a case in our group because we kept saving money waiting to spend big on something we want which at the end never came along and end up trying to use as much on whtever we can take just to use it. That was a very bad practice in which lag of planning will give us. (However planning wasn't applicable in this exercise) Overall I really like the analogy linked of this exercise because it give a much better understanding when you understand the comparison than to go straight for the obvious exercise.
