What is a Simple Consensus Workshop?
The simple consensus workshop method includes four steps.
- A group brainstorms ideas or responses, which are shared one at a time and posted to a shared space.
- The group clusters the ideas by related themes or concepts.
- The group names each of the clusters.
- The group reflects on what they now see.
This technique works in many situations to help create a shared understanding of a space and build consensus around priorities. It is very similar to the KJ Technique.
