Group Thinking

CIT is determined to strategically shift emphasis of intervention into the emerging issue of ‘Group Think’.

This is the dysfunctional aspect of collective [team; committee; initiative] ‘thinking’ where an initial thought introduction becomes the major influence leading to the group’s determination. Too often this results in a disingenuous and wrong decision.

With the rise of bi-partisanship and polarization in the public sector it became evident that more fair and just means of discussion and decision were needed.

The alternative process has A and B view the several sides of an issue together. Adversarial confrontation is now replaced by a more comprehensive and cooperative exploration of the subject.
