Quick decision making

All voices / ideas are heard 




    Step 1: Write the question on a flipchart and ensure good understanding

    o It all happens in silence

    o Each one to go in turn to silently write one 1 word or short sentence on the flipchart

    o Please ensure you don't write twice the same thing on the board

    o Once you go…

    o … Wait 30 seconds after the last participant has sat before proceeding to the next step

    Step 2: Still in silence, please come in turn and circle 3/4 items that you see as the most important challenges written on the flipchart

    o … run the math, add up

    o Highlight the most prominent challenges…

    Vigilance: don’t reopen discussions at this stage.

    Step 3: How to handle those selected challenges ?

    o Now please get together and think on how to meet those challenges

    o If the group brings solutions forward : congratulations and round of applause

    o If not: You managed to agree within 10 minutes on the key challenges and the action to be followed if any
