** A '''pre-mortem''', or '''premortem''', is a [[Management|managerial strategy]] in which a project team imagines that a project or organization has failed, and then works backward to determine what potentially could lead to the failure of the project or organization.<ref name="hbr"></ref>  <P> The technique breaks possible [[Groupthink|groupthinking]] by facilitating a positive discussion on threats, increasing the likelihood the main threats are identified. Management can then reduce the chances of failure due to [[Heuristics in judgment and decision-making|heuristics]] and [[cognitive bias|biases]] such as [[overconfidence effect|overconfidence]] and [[planning fallacy]] by analyzing the magnitude and likelihood of each threat, and take preventive actions to protect the project or organization from suffering an untimely "death". <P> According to a [[Harvard Business Review]] article from 2007, "unlike a typical critiquing session, in which project team members are asked what ''might'' go wrong, the premortem operates on the assumption that the 'patient' has died, and so asks what ''did'' go wrong."<ref name="hbr" /> <P> The pre-mortem analysis seeks to identify threats and weaknesses via the hypothetical presumption of near-future failure. But if that presumption is incorrect, then the analysis may be identifying threats/weaknesses that are not in fact real.
