When working with a group, often a ‘best idea’ needs to be selected and agreed. Depending on who is facilitating this process, this simple concept of agreeing an idea can take in practice too long and in some instances be left open ended.
It can be difficult when working in a group, particularly with different personalities involved. Some may latch on to one idea; others may be too quick to submit even though deep down they favour something else. It is important to introduce objectivity at this stage, particularly when each person feels their idea is the best one.
