Towards the end of the World Café, the benefits from the discussions, thoughts and new ideas shall be reaped. The participants per table are asked to shout out loud the major insights for the entire World Café group.
If you want to dedicate more time for the conclusion of the World Café, each table notes the most stunning ideas on cards which are then pinned on a wall that is visible to the entire group. If such a form of visualization is used, the outcomes can be clustered and priorities can be given as well as measures can be derived.
For most of us, the latter method seems to be the method of choice: documenting all results and deriving measures from these results – this is what we have learned again and again.
However, this is not necessary for successful World Cafés.
If we have done everything right, the participants are inspired by the networking discussions in such a way that something has changed inside them – something that they can take back into their day-to-day business and implement without documentation and planning of measures.
