Biases in Teams: An Exploratory Study

This study explores how teams are influenced by decision biases – also known as cognitive or managerial bias. There have been many studies that have studied how biases determine and influence individual behaviors. However, there is an intellectual void when it comes to how biases play out in small-group and team situations. We report the initial results of a case study designed to capture how biases are introduced in team situtations, how they play out and how they are recognized and addressed. Based on a case study, we showcase a temi-based view of how a team leader and team members interact and how the leam leader‟s decision biases impactd the team as a whole. Moreover, we show the reflexive relationship that shows how team behavior influenced the team leader. Keywords - Case Study, Managerial Decision Bias, Team Dynamics, Team Behavior
