1. Generate a list of
items and number the list.
2. If 2 or more items
seem very similar, combine them after obtaining group agreement.
3. If necessary, renumber
4. Give each member a
number of votes equal to at least 1/3 of the total number of items
on the list.
5. Conduct 1st voting
round and eliminate items with the fewest votes. If it is a small
group, cross off items with only 1.2 votes; if it is a medium size
group, cross off any items with 3 or fewer votes; if it is a large
group, cross off items with 4 or fewer votes.
6. Continue this process
for 1.2 more voting rounds until the list is small enough to select
a specific item for further work.
