Here is a 90-second video of an academic, Adam Grant, speaking about how to avoid groupthink, by McKinsey.

From the Youtube site, "Groupthink is probably the biggest problem I hear leaders complain about. It’s the barrier to innovation. It leads to all kinds of bad decisions. It gets in the way of change. Every leader I work with wants to know, 'How do I get diversity of thought?' What most of them do is they assign a devil's advocate. They say, 'Look, if we have a majority opinion, we need to get somebody who’s going to argue for the opposite.' Unfortunately, most of the time, it doesn’t work."
