• The possible benefit of joining various skills and knowledge

• Greater inspiration and input and therefore less boredom

• The ability for individuals to be more successful working together than on their own

• Members develop wider skills and can cover when others are absent

• Previously undiscovered skills are revealed

• People get to see projects or tasks through to completion

• People feel a sense of belonging

• Greater understanding and acceptance of decisions

• Everyone can be treated as an adult and pride in achievement encourages self-discipline


• Decisions may be slow (and more expensive).

• Individuals may dominate the groups.

• The group may take greater risks than any individual.

• Where groups strongly relate they may develop ‘groupthink’ in which the desire for consensus or harmony overtakes accuracy, critical thinking and impartiality.

• Problems arise when decisions are adjusted to satisfy the minimum requirements of every member rather than the teams overall best interests.
