What is the Nominal Group Technique?
Nominal Group Technique is a decision-making rule or model that seeks to make certain all members of a group participate. It is primarily used to structure group meetings tasked with problem solving or idea generation.
There are four steps in this model:
- Each member of the group independently records their ideas.
- The group members relate their ideas to the group.
- The group discusses each idea – asking for clarification, feedback, and providing evaluations.
- The group members vote for or rank the ideas that they find most appealing.
The group establishes rules for voting and what ideas prevail.
