6 thoughts on “Write on the walls”
I have a problem with the overall premise of your article but I still think its really informative. I really like your other posts. Keep up the great work. If you can add more video and pictures can be much better. Because they help much clear understanding. 🙂 thanks
I like this tip and I have used it in the past very successfully
If you are going to paraphrase someone’s comments, make sure you ask them (after you’re finished) if what you wrote is what they meant. If someone goes on and on, ask them if they could summarize what they said in a headline.
I like your tip. Write down to capture the idea and acknowlege the participant, check for accuracy (thanks Becky), keep it up on the wall for reference, group memory, and to be used when building new ideas. Once again a hit Craig. By the way – I really like large format paper (e.g., 4’x20′) and simple graphics for this.
People don’t realize the power of looking at one set of words, of all heads and eyes looking in one direction, of having a common focus. Your tip makes it easier to get people to make the effort to do this. (Most people, I find, think that.)
