Nominal Group Technique (NGT) is a structured group discussion used to reach consensus, problem-solve, or generate ideas. Depending upon the topic, NGT may be preceded by a brief presentation of the issue. Information is gathered by inviting each member of the group to express their ideas or suggestions on the particular issue. Participants are then asked to vote on or prioritize the ideas and suggestions of all group members. The voting process may occur multiple times. The purpose is to provide structure to a group discussion when the group is facing the challenge of reaching agreement on complex topics.
1-3 hours/session (multiple sessions are common)
