Organized in small groups, participants sit around tables to talk about specific topics. All participants, except one, move between tables to share their ideas with a new group. As they move from table to table, ideas are transformed in unexpected ways, sparking collective intelligence. Priorities are then established and a consensus is reached.
We can customize the World Café approach with a more structured or open-ended formula to meet the needs of teams and organizations.

This method mobilizes working groups around a specific issue or mission, making them responsible for creating their own agenda and choosing their topics of importance. The facilitator explains the topic and goal, encourages participants to think about talking points, and provides discussion guidelines. Afterwards, participants prepare a report, outlining the key points and suggested actions. A process to prioritize and implement solutions is then devised.
