Joint assessment of requirements

Everything is fine in the team, as long as it comes to joint assessment of requirements or tasks. Such activities generate a lot of controversy and conflict that can easily spiral out of control. There have been cases when the team is unable to assess the requirements within a month. But how then to manage this, so that the evaluation process was effective and did not take much time?
