The term "groupthink" has become a standard way of describing a special phenomenon that can and does occur in groups. If a group experiences groupthink, it has developed a set of shared perspectives that may be unrealistic but are strongly supported by the members of the group.
GroupThink Index (GTI) helps teams gauge the effectiveness of their decision making progress and catch hidden tendencies for team members to share the same perspective out of haste, laziness or self-satisfied goals. The GTI helps teams better understand in what areas of decision making they believe they may be participating in groupthink.
In this Online Assessment individuals first respond to an open-ended question that asks them to summarize their teamís last important meeting. They are then asked to rate their team against 40 statements with that summary in mind. These responses are used to generate a feedback report, which begins with a presentation of scores, showing a rating for each of the eight decision making dimensions assessed in the GTI: Unanimity, Conforming, Stereotyping, Rationalizing, Moral Championing, Self-Censoring, and Invulnerability.
The individual registration offers a single-use of the GTI. Following purchase, the intended recipient receives an email containing a link to the online assessment. Results are generated immediately upon completion and a second email sent containing a link to their personalized feedback report.
