Does Conflict Improve Decision Making

Can Good Decisions be Made in an Environment Where Everyone is In Agreement and Non-confrontational?

Does a collaborative environment mean that team interactions need to be harmonious? Does friction and disagreement improve decision making or hinder it?

This mini-course looks at two alternate viewpoints on the role of conflict in decision making. It reviews the science around the factors that affect and are affected by team and interpersonal conflict.

Recognizing that creative and innovative decision making is often stifled by team dynamics it proposes a way forward that differentiates between a team making decisions and a team taking action.
