The passage claims that the best way to approach projects is to assemble a group of people into a team because there are a lot of advantages of group work. However, the professor in the lecture opposes to this statement by using a sample of a company which used the group work to approach a project.

First of all, the passage claims that taking part in a group process can be very rewarding for individual members of the team. This might be true for the members who do not contribute as much as others. The professor points out that individual members who have done well in the projects do not feel fare about the rewards because there are some members in the team taking the free ride with them.

More over, the passage believes that with the numbers of people involved and the greater resources they possess, a group should complete the task more quickly. However, the professor shows that the company which adopted the group work for a project found out the project was not moving as quickly as they expected. In fact, it took the group so long to conform themselves to the group's consensus and they spent a lot of time on meetings.

Finally, the passage claims that the individual team member has a much better chance to get recognized working in a group then working as individual. However, the professor strongly refutes this point. His concern is that when some of the members become influential in the group, they will ignore the opinion from other members, who know that the direction of the work is not correct. When the whole project fails, all the members will be blamed, including those who tried to oppose the original idea
