Needs of Role Play in Group Decision–Making
Still struggling with a RDM PMA, I found that during team decision-making process there some judgmental bias occur. Thus, in order to cope this issue, people use brainstorming which very helpful to foster generation of variety idea to solve problems. By having brainstorming it could minimize most bias since critical thinking will be arise in form different point of view and new approach for problem solving. Nevertheless, it also has drawback like groupthink that might occur when team member who has strong characteristic force particular decision and avoid any challenge from other opinion, it also can be categorized as conformation trap that affect final decision. Therefore in order to minimize this issue, I think a role-play called devils' advocate is good way to ensure constructive feedback in place in order to challenge every assumption and options. Thus, as a result team member will encourage thinking critically before deciding something.
