True Believers

Team members need to believe that it is possible to reach a technical synthesis incorporating the best elements and aspects of everyone's contributions. Believing this, they will stubbornly look for something better, rather than settle on compromise or cling needlessly to personal favorites. By persisting, they build their understanding of the problem and the nature of the strengths and weaknesses of each approach. From this, they enhance the odds of finding that creative something that exceeds them all.

Consensus design also works best when each of us believes that building a better piece of software is more important than getting our own favorite ideas into the result in some predetermined form. This investment in the quality of the outcome makes it easier to see the merits of whatever ideas emerge from the group process.
