Meetings in Denmark

Quick lists

Purpose: To ensure that participants are involved and that they use their knowledge, instead of simply informing participants.


When the participants' knowledge must be brought into play.


Ask the participants to make a list of what they know about a given topic. Subsequently these lists are used as a starting point for establishing a common understanding of the topic.

Why involve your meeting participants

Active involvement makes meetings more valuable because:

  1. It helps you make better decisions
  2. It increases networking and knowledge sharing
  3. It engages and motivates the participants
