This guide allows a group to rank a list of options or ideas in order of importance in a group meeting or brainstorming session.

Some of the steps include: obtain the starting list of ideas (options, problems, etc.) from the project team or have everyone on the team write down (or say) the ideas that he or she feels is most important; if idea collection is verbal, record ideas on a flipchart or board; discuss ideas only to clarify their meaning for all team members; post statements where all members of the team can see them; and check with the team to make sure the same idea has not been captured twice in slightly different words.
