Group-Think

when members of a team stop thinking

sometimes it's because they forget what their Mission is, other times it's because they lose a sense of balance in trying to accomplish their Mission

IrvingJanis's original definition of the term was "a mode of thinking that people engage in when they are deeply involved in a cohesive in-group, when the members' strivings for unanimity override their motivation to realistically appraise alternative courses of action." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Groupthink
