Why do this workshop?
This is a great format for democratically setting and running the agenda of a meeting.
The team work together to brainstorm then vote to choose the agenda items, discussing each one in order.

How to run this workshop?

  1. Select a theme for the meeting and write it at the top of the board - this is optional.
  2. Have everyone add sticky notes with ideas to the topics section. There is no limit on the number of sticky notes each. (10 minutes)
  3. Have participants introduce each sticky note, a sentence or two about each (10-15 minutes).
  4. Hold a voting round with three votes per person – you decide (5 minutes).
  5. Rank the more popular topics higher in the “To Discuss” column. This is your meeting agenda.
  6. Move the top item into the middle "Discussing" column and set the timer for five minutes — or whatever length the group determines is reasonable. This is the initial timebox for discussion.
  7. When the time limit is reached, ask participants if there’s interest in continuing the discussion. If so, set the timer for a shorter duration and continue discussing. You can repeat this step if the group want to keep discussing.
  8. When the discussion is finished, move its card to the right “Discussed” column. Bring the next highest card over from “To Discuss” into “Discussing” and repeat the process.
  9. When all topics are discussed or you are running out of time, elicit action items from the group to wrap up the session.
