ELMO - a tool for efficient discussions

Boost the efficiency of your strategy sessions with the ELMO technique, a practical tool to keep your discussions with Digital Strategy Cards focused and on point. When a conversation starts to veer off-topic or becomes unproductive, any team member can simply say 'ELMO' or use a designated ELMO card.

Implementing ELMO in your sessions ensures that every moment is spent constructively, respecting each participant's time and contributions, while maintaining a goal-oriented flow of ideas.

PARKING LOT - your space for side ideas

The "Parking Lot" is a facilitation technique used during meetings and workshops to temporarily 'park' off-topic discussions and ideas for later review. When an interesting point arises that doesn't fit the immediate discussion, write it down on the Parking Lot card.

This ensures that great ideas are acknowledged and can be revisited later without derailing the session's focus.

IMPACT/EFFORT MATRIX - prioritize ideas & decisions effectively

The Impact/Effort Matrix is an essential tool for informed decision-making in business strategy. It enables teams to effectively evaluate and prioritize their projects or ideas by considering two key aspects: the effort required for implementation and the potential impact on the organization. This matrix is particularly useful when you're faced with multiple options, as it helps in categorizing tasks based on their strategic value.
