Materials

  • Coloured sticky dots
  • one colour for each participant per question

Instructions

Before

Setting: Lists on the wall, visible to all participants, coloured sticky dots

Time needed: 3 minutes

Pre-Work Required: Adapt the questions to the topic

During

Give each person one of each colour of sticky dots (see below). To answer each specific question, each person walks up to the front and puts the corresponding colour dot on their priority item(s).  The questions may follow the Focused Conversation method): i.e. red dot = one you're most passionate about, yellow=easiest to do, green= costs least, blue=most impact.
Reflect what the pattern tells you about the group's consensus.

After

Follow-Up Required: Conversation about the consensus, state the decision.

Usual or Expected Outcomes: Clear visual patterns that allow easy separation of high and low priorities
