After stage 1 put people into pairs and get them to agree to a compromise list. Then put the pairs into groups of four and again ask for discussion and a consensus. If there is time, continue until there is just one group. If you ask for, say, three items, make sure the list does not get longer when you move to larger groups.

Quality/ importance grids Hint
In stage 1 ask for the identification of key aspects of the course. List and cluster on the flipchart but you must end up with exactly 12 aspects. Then each person is asked to rate each aspect from 1 - 12 for quality and importance and then to put these on a graph. Hint

Example grid

Then ask groups to discuss the aspects in the top left quadrant.
