- Ask the group to rate their level of consensus on a topic from 0 to 5.
- Each person responds by showing a fist or a number of fingers that corresponds to their opinion.
- The group moves forward only when all votes are above 3.
- Allot more time to discuss if the group holds up a variety of ones, twos, threes, as they then have more work to do.
|Fist (0 Fingers) indicates completely different point of views|
|3 Fingers indicate willingness to go with the group decision|
|5 Fingers indicate total agreement|
