… putting together a puzzle with only the “flat” or “outside” pieces to make a border.
If you take away the “inside pieces” and picture on the box you lose perspective, solutions, and the sum of all its parts. It often also takes a lot longer to finish a puzzle when only one person is working on it. When you add other people to work together on the puzzle they sometimes see things differently than you. They conceptualize the pieces different, view things from a different angle, and offer alternative options, suggestions and opinions. Working together often gets the job done quicker with more solutions, less time, and more effectiveness.
