Is many type of decision maker in one group bad or good???

As i am putting the final touch on RDM PMA, one thing am really doubting now is having multiple type of decision maker in a group.  At the first glance it might look as if it is really good because the group can have multiple point of view and thus bringing the best out of everoyne.  However, sometime in decision making there are no such thing as 'BEST' it really varies toward intrest thus having too many different or CONTRADICTING type of decision making will result in chaos in the group members.  In most cases like i have experience first hand, it woudl end up being democratic which is a fair yet very suboptimal solution toward the group decision.  INversely, people argue that one type of decision maker will only result in confirmaion thus creating no added value among the group ideas.

WHAT is the right mix? is there a right mix? or it just matter of luck and getting it right on the time?

  1. I think having various types of decision makers is positive. . . . .You cannot look in problems from a specific perspective. . . ! There is a great in my eyes tool on that called the six hats. .... However i think when it comes to a conclusion it is a matter of the leader to make the best out of it and coordinate all the powers in one common based opinion

  2. I think it depends. You want to choose the best option, however, it’s difficult to decide which one is better. Do you remember the exercise we did in Paul’s class, about the environment. There are four results, but no one was sure which was the best. Thus, chaos will appear. But sometimes chaos is good as it helps to discover bias. Sometimes, it may strengthen the bias. Just as the way you treat it.
