Several recent articles have focused on the ability and power of groups to come up with better solutions than any individual can.

The power, and goal as I see it, of Knowledge Management is to make it possible to make the group connections that enable this improved decision making while preventing the negative aspects (e.g., groupthink) of human social decision making. The problem, as always, is that we humans don’t always act the way we should.

(An interesting read along these lines is What is neurofinance?, first in a series by David Edwards posted on Brain Waves.)
