Paper & pens
Provide a visible place to record ideas that might otherwise cause the group to be derailed. Ensure that all ideas are captured
Prepare the sheet in advance and position it in a place that is visible throughout the day.
Parking lot is added to either by the facilitator or participants themselves for tangential, off line comments, thoughts, ideas and concerns that might otherwise lead the workshop off track
It can be used for items that are not central to the workshop topic or which participants didn’t want to air in front of the group.
Check in regularly, clarify and, if anything can be answered then and there, capture the response on a card.
