A consensogram is a tool developed by David Langford as a means to quickly determine and display the degree of consensus on a topic, question, or proposal.
Each member of the group writes a number on a sticky note — usually a number between zero and ten, or a percentage from zero to one hundred — representing their response to a statement or question. No names or commentary are required, just the number representing one’s perspective.
When the sticky notes are collected and laid out as a bar chart, the degree of consensus is clearly visible to all.
The consensogram can be used to determine what to do next.
