While John Cleese believes the product failed because of bad luck, his replacement realizes that Cleese's ego took over the team brainstorming meeting. He made bad decisions because he failed to take into account the rules of team building.
Involve the team in creating a good question. It takes time, but could lead to new innovations and product lines. Watch a scenario.
Brainstorm multiple proposals. Involve every team member and ensure they feel respected for their opinions.
Analyze any potential complications or possible advantages. Ensure everyone participates and feels involved.
Look at the chances of success for each option and decide on a probability of success. Weigh the risks versus the rewards before making a decision.
Cleese uses the team decision thinking tactics he just learned to make another decision. He and Robert Lindsay summarize the episode.
