Nominal Group Technique

Nominal Group Technique is a Team Tool used to generate a short list of items to be acted on:

Stage 1:

• make sure the purpose of the activity is clearly understood, as is the NGT procedure
• each member of the group writes down ideas in silence
• discuss and clarify the ideas

Stage 2:

• cull the list of ideas to a manageable size, say 50
• members are given index cards, around one card for every 5 ideas listed
• group members write down their choices of ideas on the cards, one choice per card, and ranks the ideas
• summarize the scores on the whiteboard and try to agree which will be actioned
