Run time: 22 Minutes

Dr. Irving Janis introduced the concept of "groupthink" by asking and then answering these questions: How do groups really make decisions? What drives groups to agree despite the better judgement of some, or even all, participants? Why do group decisions sometimes result in monumental error? What are the signals to watch for?

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 Harbor and the Cuban Missile Crisis - to explore and help demonstrate the phenomenon of groupthink.

Groupthink is making a difference:

"Groupthink addresses problems we face on a continuing basis and the examples are relevant to the kind of work we do. The program has proven effective in helping us overcome our problems in this area."

"I would use CRM's Groupthink program in the areas of leadership, creativity, risk management, problem solving and decision making. The program is especially suitable for leadership training because it creates an awareness of the groupthink syndrome so it can be avoided."
-Bob Pike
-The Bob Pike Group
