    Anne great article. From experience dealing with groups and presenting alternative ideas usually met with the response like, "you seem to think you knows everything". However, later on one would hear, "I think his ideas are more workable". Be prepared for reaction and don't take it personal.

    If I were you I would apply your idea @Anne Thornley-Brown. Cross-pollination of many circles with each circle representing a different idea. In a way I see your suggestion as an alternative to the fishbone analysis. Circles take less area and allows for better focusing. We may even highlight the connecting ideas between two circles to represent its strength/ relevance. Bravo @Anne Thornley-Brown

    Our thoughts are definitely in alignment. I like the process you describe and I would also add another layer. Use an outer circle similar to the format for a forum role-play. Let the interaction you described take place in the centre of the circle. It is a way of exposing the whole group to divergent points of view. If the group is large, you can have many circles simultaneously. How about introducing some cross-pollination between the circles after set intervals? The result will be richer ideas.

    Dear @Anne Thornley-Brown- Again, I am mesmerized by you this morning. You wrote "Groups are notoriously bad at coming up with great ideas, making decisions, and generating breakthrough strategies. No one wants to stick his or her neck out or go against the tide".Then you dwelled on giving the prescription how to reduce groupthink. If you would read my presentation on same topic I am confident you shall see the "proximity of thinking" between us. I fully agree with your analysis and remedies.

    You are so right, @John Whitehead Change is scary for a lot of people, but I think it also depends on the type of change for some.

    I am usually unhappy with technological changes because I struggle just to keep with the fast-moving technology that now surrounds us (it's not my comfort zone at all). But moving to a new area, taking a different job, trying out something new -- those don't scare me much. Maybe it's because I've lived long enough to realize that one way or another, things usually work out just fine.

    Change is a process, but leadership is struggling to express the need for change. The teams of today are very specialized and focused in a direction. From personal brands to personal change management we have individuals and change represents a drift from their personal concepts. With the advent of the internet change is now moving faster than ever, only because we can see it in mass. Change used to be (Yes i said it) slow as communications were slow.

    Change management is a different animal today and has to bet met with more strategic thinking and long term views.

    Great post, thanks.

    @John Whitehead It is clear to me that the pace of organisational change is increasing. I have seen lots of "change projects" and they are all focused on delivering like the typical IT project where when it is finished everyone high fives and says we delivered it! What is missing it seems to me, is the need to embed recognition that change is ongoing. People need the tools to live with change, not just the tools to go through a particular change at a particular point in an organisation's life. My sense of this is it is a much more personal thing than simply a program that can be delivered on mass.

    They could spend more time getting to know their employees. They could spend some time working beside them once every week or two. They could be more inclusive so they were more approachable. I hate to say this because I don't want to make it sound like a blanket statement but there are CEO's who abuse their roles by leaving during work hours for golf outings, 2 hour lunches which include alcohol, take extended vacations and are paid 10 times that of which their employees are paid. This is not conducive for a healthy work environment. There are many good CEO's as well... much food for thought here!
