limitations of committees are as follows:
1. Time and cost:
As many people have to participate in the deliberations, enormous time is taken. Travel and related costs for each member of a committee increases the total cost of operation.
2. Avoiding decisions:
Committees are often appointed to delay or avoid taking action. The action is postponed on the pretext of receiving the report from the committees.
3. Delayed decisions:
Decisions are not taken by committees immediately. Postponement or extending the meeting delays decisions.
4. Selecting right members:
Selecting right members for committees is a problem. Some may purposively give wrong solutions. Personal prejudices may crop in and the committees decisions or recommendations may not be unanimous.
Individual accountability cannot be fixed in committees. During the times of success everyone will try to project their importance and in times of failures no one will come forward to accept the responsibility.
