October 26, 2017, from 5-7pm. Collective Intelligence: Three Factors for Building Smarter Teams


Guest Speakers: Anita Williams Woolley and Scott E. Page Collective-Intelligence-Three-Factors-for-Building-Smarter-Teams.png


What Leads to Smart Teams?

So what is it that makes one team “smarter” than another — not in the sense of the average of all the IQs, but rather in terms of effectiveness?

Anita Williams Woolley, a professor at Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University, likes to use these two cabinets to illustrate that we “are really bad at predicting which teams are going to perform well in the future,” in part because we tend to focus on individual attributes, and less on how the team works together. It’s important to ask: Why was Lincoln’s team more successful than Kennedy’s?

Woolley posits that one potential answer is collective intelligence.

 Instructions for Event Registration

  • Go to the List of Upcoming Events area (above), move the cursor over and click on the program listing you are interested in registering for.
  • You will be taken to the program information page where you will see the program information in detail. Scroll down...
  • There is an area that shows Registration and will have a ‘click here to register’ link which will take you to another window where you will need to click on the Register Button.  The system will then take you to the Institute’s sign in page where members will type in the same sign in they have with the Institute.
  • Guests will click on ‘don’t have a login/password' – follow instructions there.  Guests will only have to do this once.  Make sure you keep your login/password for your records.
  • Follow the shopping cart instructions from there.  For the free programs for members, the shopping cart will show the price for non-members but will zero out at the end of the process for members. 
  • The system will only allow one purchase at a time, which means guests will have to sign up for themselves through the system.  This requires them to make a registration profile in the sign in page, and payment via credit card.
