Avoiding Group Think
This tool (from Mind Tools) is a face-to-face process for gaining consensus where the group shares and discusses all issues before evaluation, with each group member participating equally in evaluation. It describes strategies for checking the fundamental assumptions behind important decisions, validating the decision-making process, and evaluating the risks involved. It is found in Focus on What's Important under Prioritize the issues.
