Is it effective?

A committee of 28 people to decide on whether to run an event. Does that make sense?

Apparently it does, to some people.


More importantly, does it work? Whether it’s a committee to run an event, host a party or sign off on a marketing plan, you need to consider whether the people that are making the final decisions in this sphere really need to be involved. You could have committees  to discuss and ratify some decisions, but do they need to be involved in every single aspect? What exactly do you achieve here? This is quite apart from the fact that the size of the group makes it harder for you to move with speed and ease and action off any plan.


Are you involving everyone because you should or that its the most appropriate thing to do? Do you not want to step on anyone’s toes? At any one time, there are but one or two people who really have the power to decide.


A committtee could get together to bring a plan to fruition, with each person working on what he does best. But consider what aspects you need to involve the entire committee on. Your success hinges on it.
