Dave Winsborough: The ‘more talent’ fallacy

1 minute read

Building teams of highly-talented ‘stars’ is an appealing idea, but when it becomes reality, the result can be a shocking let-down.

In this video, Dave discusses the false notion that packing more talent into teams ensures success. He highlights the example of Wall Street analysts who often fail at a new, unfamiliar firm, and cardiac surgeons whose work results in poorer patient outcomes when they move to a new hospital.

Dave emphasises the significance of context, and of focusing on 'star teams' rather than individual star talent. Watch this video to learn more.
