- have 3 various maps, with acetate overlays, at each work station table for people to mark (and code) their ideas
- have flip charts at each work station to record the "reason" for each mark along with the identification code
- every mark on a map must have a reason why or it will not be part of the meeting record

- be clear about what is being asked
- have a facilitator at each group work station to keep the discussion flowing and make sure the reasons are being recorded
