Workshop Tactics

Parking Lot

Parking Lot

1. At the start of a meeting or workshop explain to the group that we are going to use a “parking lot” to help us to work more effectively.

2. Write a large “P” at the top of some flip-chart paper and tape it to a prominent wall. Explain that whenever a point is raised or questions are asked that don’t directly relate to the subject or session, you will write it on a sticky note, and stick that onto the flip-chart paper.

3. Use it throughout the meeting or workshop. Invite group members to add to the parking lot at any time.

4. As the meeting/workshop comes to a close, ensure that there is time to address the points and questions in the parking lot, with the whole group.
