Action Summary

Requirement

Paper prepared with 5 columns: Task, Specific Steps, By Whom, With Whom and By When
Marker pens
Cards can be used for participants to complete, or the facilitator can write on behave of the group.

 

Purpose

To record agreed next steps and capture key activities, accountability and timescales.  Achieve a consensus within the group by resolving the next steps to be taken.

 

Method

Often, but not always, the final activity. Not always an action plan, because it probably lacks the fine detail, but a clear, agreed and owned summary of what is going happen, by whom and by when.
For large groups you can invite subgroups to suggest recommendations and refine them through facilitated discussion with the group.
Double check that it works for everyone, if necessary you can ask the group to sign the action summary at the end of the workshop to confirm acceptance.
