This week on the PM Debate Podcast we are exploring the topic of confirmation bias. Twitter was recently called out for using algorithms in its feed to enhance user experience that gives users what they “want to see”. This approach means that people will see in their feed more items similar to ones they have liked, commented on, or shared. A rapidly growing number of people get their news online and social media sites which have a tendency to deliver news from one specific viewpoint. This means that we simply confirm what we already believe to be true. Does the same type of confirmation bias exist in business and on projects? The motion is:
“Social media is making confirmation bias in organizations much worse resulting in greater risk to project success.”
