To discern priorities using a number of perspectives
- Coloured sticky dots
- one colour for each participant per question
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
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.
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
