In the Inclusion Meeting Cards, the Devil's Advocate is a role potentially given to a more junior member of the team in the hopes of giving them permission to voice their critiques. For a discussion of why that's useful, we have Rachael O'Meara, author of the book Pause: Harnessing the Life Changing Power of Giving Yourself a Break. Rachel suggests we see this role as the critic with immense ability to change the course of the decision process. Without being a meanie. And Rachael shares her best and worst meeting stories.
