Groups may be both a boon (for example, they statistically outperform individuals) and a bane (for example, they take too long) of decision making. While they can systematically outperform individuals, groups are also prey to systematic bias and organizational skewing.
Consider the systematic decision-making processes of your own organization. Using the readings for this module, the online library resources, and the Internet, respond to the following:
- What are the group decision-making processes and structures in place at your current or with a previous employer that were designed to eliminate bias, create structure, and cultivate consistently better decisions?
- Were the processes successful? Why, or why not?
- How may the structure have facilitated organizational skewing?
Write your initial response in a minimum of 300 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
