Group dynamics and wisdom!

Insightful backed up with empirical research. A must listen for any manager/leader to make wise rational decisions according to the value and risk of information. Possibly 20% of missing information could be worth more than the 80% of what is deemed to be common knowledge!? Watch out for those who are confident (possibly over confident) because it is correlated with less than optimum decision-making, e.g. risky or extreme.
