The Danger of GroupThink

“If we are all in agreement on the decision–then I propose we postpone further discussion of this matter until our next meeting to give ourselves time to develop disagreement and perhaps gain some understanding of what the decision is all about.”

So wrote Alfred P. Sloan. This management guru recognized both the danger of “groupthink” and the need for creative disagreement are vital for any committee or project team to succeed. Sloan was the transformative president of General Motors, philanthropist and more. Thanks, Mardy Grothe. Groupthink can be an innovation killer. To paraphrase Marshall Goldsmith, what got us here won’t get us there.
