Nominal Group Technique

The nominal group technique leans heavily on the brainstorming approach, but augments idea generation with judgmental ranking and group evaluation. Group members provide written and individual judgments of alternative ideas, followed by score aggregation, discussion, and possibly new judgments if consensus is lacking (a round-robin protocol ensures that everyone participates).
