In the devil's advocate approach, managers and planners produce a planning document which is then subject to criticism by top management. The criticism may uncover some assumptions. However, this approach often encourages top management to be hypercritical, with the added problem that, if they are too opposed, the suggested plan disintegrates with no alternative to replace it. In these circumstances planners may be tempted to produce "safe" plans to protect themselves from severe criticism.
