avoid group think technique

  • Note down ideas, together in silence (5 mins)
  • Self Edit (2 mins)
  • Share and capture on the board (5 mins)
  • Vote, individually and quietly (2-5 mins)
  • Share and capture, short precise not sales pitches, mark board (2-5 mins)
  • Decide, owner/leader chooses not group. Votes = input in to discussion 
  • Rejoice…

Why does it work?

  • Quiet time to think
  • Parallel is better than serial
  • Voting commitment
