Teamwork.. is it always good??

RDM pma have been a very great challenge yet very great fun.  I am now going in a non stop cycle of criticizing my decision then re criticizing the criticism i made toward it over and over again.  This is again very fun and very annoying at times.  One of the main findings that i got was that teamwork isn't always the best decision and group thinking is nearly inevitable without power and authority involve.  By this, i reflect to the group in which everyone should be treated equally and that causes a lot of downside towad making the best decision happen.  Even though group members are not scared to raise opinion and make their voice heard, but sometime the system of democratic and trying to compromise have been reflected as one of the biggest mistake our group have made. 

I am not creating this blog doubting that teamwork is bad, but it really did backfire our group decision at some point.  However, the issue i just want to raise here is does individual thinking sometime create better result than team thinking? (taking in consideration individual thinking with all data given from group members.)

  1. This bias always happen in a decision group with a good-image leader becuse the followers will respect and follow the leader’s opinions without any question. As we know that most of bias will be found by critical discussions. Thus, when the followers believe thier leader, this bias will increase.

  2. good question…however lets think in this way,,sometimes, leader is the final decision maker, when team make any decision, there will be one person to make the final decision, maybe its base on the whole group’s agreement or some group members just gave up or switch their ideas to follow others. can this be called a team based robust decison making? obvious not..therefore not only the leader but the team members should think critically which is the most objective way while using decision making tools
