							Yes, the work done by one of the component forces alone will be greater than the change in kinetic energy.
Let us consider a body of mass m which pulled by a string. Two forces are acting on the block. One is its weight (W = mg) which is in downward direction and the other one is tension (T) which is just opposite direction to the weight of the body as shown in below figure.

But, in accordance to work-energy theorem, work done is equal to the change in kinetic energy.
So,

From the above observation we conclude that, work done by one of the component forces alone will be greater than the change in kinetic energy.
