The reading and the lecture are both about working on a project as a team which is created by assembling a group of people. The author of the reading believes that there are several benefits of approaching a project as a team. The lecturer challenges the statements made by the author. He is of the opinion that not only it has some advantages but also has some drawbacks.
First of all, the author suggests that while working with a group, there is an amalgamation of different types of people having a wider range of knowledge, expertise, and skill. It is mentioned that a team can solve the project more promptly and there is a high possibility of generating creative and intellectual solutions. This argument is challenged by the lecturer. He says that a team consists of different people, sometimes it may happen that some of the members give a free ride. Furthermore, he argues that in spite of having almost zero contribution some of the group members enjoy the outcome of the success of a project.
Secondly, the writer contends that collective and risky decisions are made by the presence and consultation of other team members. The article notes that no individual will be responsible in case of wrong decisions. The lecturer, however, rebuts this by asserting that decisions may not be taken quickly as the members will have difficulty in coming to a conclusive decision. He elaborates on this by mentioning that there are definitely one or two influential persons lead the group without any discussion on a probable solution.
Finally, it is stated in the article that as the team’s overall outcome can be more far-reaching, the individual person has a much better possibility to shine, to get recognition profoundly. The lecturer, on the other hand, posits that in a group all members are not equally skilled, expert and definitely the insightful, perceptive person has enormous contribution in comparison with others. He puts forth the idea that while discussing the success, everyone mentioned the team rather than the insightful one which eventually creates discontent.
In conclusion, the lecturer successfully and effectively challenge the issues made by the author.
