The Tyranny of the Average is the following: if you get people together in, for example a team
and thats why, by the way, I feel weve been brainwashed on teamwork if you get people in a
team, if you get people in a corporation, you can be almost sure that those people are not going
to come up with the best ideas and implement those best ideas. They are not going to come up
with the mediocre ideas either. What they are going to come up with is something in the middle.
And thats what they are going to implement. Why? Because its the Tyranny of the Average. We
have strong evidence that when human beings men and women get together and live
together, they dont go for outstanding ideas in projects. They dont go for mediocre ideas. They
go for the middle way.
