Gilley, K. (1997).  The Alchemy of Fear, How to Break the Corporate Trance and Create Your Company's Successful Future.
"One would expect that, when a group of bright people come together to make a decision or analyze a problem, their combined abilities would result in a group intelligence greater than that of any individual. Instead, most groups experience exactly the opposite—inverse intelligence. The resulting group intelligence is significantly less than that of any individual of the individuals within it." (p. 80)
Gonzales, L. (2009).  Everyday Survival: Why Smart People Do Stupid Things.
"If individual human beings can form forceful and persistent mental models, organizations or groups of people seem to be able to do so on an almost unimaginable scale. A person has secret doubts and fears. An organization has the emotional life of a reptile." (p. 93)
