Understanding The Diffusion of Responsibility

The more people you have involved, the less likely you are to get any one of them to take action.

That is the phenomenon of the Diffusion of Responsibility.

If there are other people involved, why do I need to take action? Why didn’t they?

When it comes to decision making in your organisation, the concept of the Diffusion of Responsibility is one which you really need to understand, if you want to get stuff done.
