Groups naturally look for consensus and will often come up with a false consensus, even when individual members disagree.
This programme uses the space shuttle Challenger disaster to dissect this phenomenon and shows how you can avoid it.
Participants in Groupthink training gain an understanding of the eight symptoms and strategies for avoiding it. After seeing how the groupthink phenomenon may have caused the Challenger disaster, your organization's team consensus-building and process-implementation will be changed forever.
Also mentioned are other historical events - the Bay of Pigs invasion, Pearl Harbour and the Cuban Missile Crisis - to explore and help demonstrate the phenomenon of groupthink.
