It's Time To Break Up With Break-Out Groups | Creativity & Decision-Making | Scoop.it
Does anyone actually enjoy break-out groups? It's a serious question.

 

From the article: "Break-out groups are intended to break up the monotony of a long meeting and get people talking to each other on key topics. These are worthy goals; break-out groups are just lousy at realizing them.

 

"What could work better? I think time slots devoted to mini 'unconferences'would. ... At an unconference time slots and meeting rooms are predetermined, but nothing else is.

Psychologist Julie Minson, co-lead of the study, says these findings don’t negate the value of group decision-making, but they do highlight a need for caution. “If people become aware that collaboration leads to an increase in overconfidence, you can set up ways to mitigate it. Teams could be urged to consider and process each others’ inputs more thoroughly.”
