Each issue is written on a separate piece of paper as a statement as concise but also as clear as possible. To facilitate understanding of the task, the trainer shows an example, writing a common challenge with a marker on an A4 sheet of paper. All papers will be displayed on a wall in a random order, regardless of the group that produced them. Participants are given a few minutes to read all the statements. After a short common reflection on the similarities and differences between the issues identified they will be categorised in clusters. Challenges that are similar will be joined together.
