Wiser: Getting Beyond Groupthink to Make Groups Smarter

Video Description

Business leaders today all talk of collaboration and teamwork. Yet the reality is that making group decisions is extremely hard, and groups often make bad, slow decisions. Why does group decision making so often fail, and what can groups and leaders do to make better decisions? In the just published Wiser: Getting Beyond Groupthink to Make Groups Smarter, Harvard Law professor Cass Sunstein, co-author of Nudge, examines why groups so often fail in making decisions and identifies new mechanisms for collective problem solving and decision making. In this interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, Sunstein shares insights from this new book, offers tactics and lessons to help leaders avoid the pitfalls associated with group decision making, and provides specific ways to reach better outcomes.
