Article of the Week

When does the wisdom of crowds improve decision-making?
Groups often make better decisions than individuals. But is this always the case? Wharton professor Barbara Mellers and doctoral student Ike Silver study factors that lead to "wise" crowds and those that do not. Both leaderless groups and groups with strong leaders exhibit strengths and weaknesses; in fact, a particularly predictive aspect of a wise crowd is a leader who is willing to change his or her mind.
