Description

Dirk Deichmann, Assistant Professor at the Department of Technology and Operations Management at RSM and his research partner Michael Jensen have done research to find if it is more effective to work in teams or to work alone. In their research they conclude that teams are more effective in generating ideas, but that some people prefer to work alone because they find the costs of teams too high. Moreover, they are not willing to share any rewards.
