Rose, Thorn, Bud (theme phase)
How it works?
Participants submit roses, thorns and buds for discussion. Participants rank from most to least important. The highest ranked are turned into themes against which ideas will be created in the next phase of the workshop.
Recommended time: 20-50 mins
Recommended number of participants: 3-20+
When to use it?
When you want to develop ideas to both continue to be successful (roses, buds) as well as addressing challenges (thorns). Especially helpful in project-based situations to provide a balanced context of the good and bad.
