Getting published by the Harvard Business Review (HBR) was not the end of the story… (see our blog post about our HBR.org publication).
After our successful article on HBR.org, in which we'd focused on strategies for better group decision-making, we received a message from HBR that our article would be published as a chapter in a hard copy version of a HBR guide in the summer.
Naturally, we were very honoured and proud to have our article included in a Harvard Business Review guide! The HBR guide to Collaborative Teams gives practical tips on how to solve problems as a team and how to deliver great results. The book focuses on how to collaborate within teams, how to build a team and how to make decisions within a team, and our article suited this framework perfectly.
Our chapter in the book describes seven ways to improve decision-making in a group. In it, you can read our thoughts on matters such as how to approach expert advice, the ideal group size, and shared responsibility.
Our current decision-making training modules incorporate these insights, and during our classes we delve deeper into these topics by means of group discussions and exercises.
You can buy the book on Amazon but it can also be found around the world at numerous bookstores, airports and libraries or just read it on your Kindle.
