Team members brainstorm in 4 categories to quickly list issues
After discussing the data from Phase 2 show a flip chart with 4 quadrants labeled ':)', ':(', 'Idea!', and 'Appreciation'. Hand out sticky notes.
The team members can add their input to any quadrant. One thought per sticky note.
Cluster the notes.
Hand out 6-10 dots for people to vote on the most important issues.
This list is your input for Phase 4.
Set the stage
State an affirmative goal for the session

Let's find ways to amplify our strengths in process and teamwork
Let's find out how to extend our best uses of engineering practices and methods

If someone else has the same score, they place their sticky above the placed one, effectively forming a histogram
