Here are some notes I took on 23 September, on the Crowd wise method:
- Maximum diversity in participant's background in order to have the maximum variety in viewpoints and insights
- Voting encourages deepening discussion on stronger and weaker elements of the different options. To start voting instantly (1st round) may lead to questions of participants on the methodology. Facilitator should be keen to focus the debate on the content of the issues that are at stake.
- Voting strategies can work both in small and Large Groups. Influencing voting behaviour by anticipating on other's behaviour can be hampered by diminishing the options in the subsequent rounds of discussion and voting.
- Crowd Wise facilitates and encourages people exchanging viewdata and learning new elements, even if the participant's are not familiar with the subject.
- Participant's pick up the merits of one option. Eliminating options, "balloon debate"
I hope we can enhance the method further online and share experiences. I will certainly try to do a Crowd Wise in my work!
