Room, Walls, Whiteboards

  • People will be organized into table-teams, averaging 5 people per team. Thus, we need Num/People tables; e.g., 6 or 7 tables if 35 people. The tables are ideally in separate islands, circular or square, with a team at each.
  • Don’t make it a crowded room; there are a number of activities/exercises that involve the teams moving around.
  • There are several wall activities/exercises, involving flip chart paper or PostIt Note layouts; each team needs some unencumbered clear wall space for this. To be clear: There must be lots of clear empty wall space, and we must be able to use the walls, and put things on the walls.



Supplies for the Coach/Speaker

Read this: Supplies - for Coach Use

Supplies for Each Table of Participants

Per Team-Table (e.g., of 5 people):

  • 2 packages of 3x5 inch Yellow-only Post-It notes
  • 5 BLACK "Sharpie" style small fine-tipped black marker pens
  • 2 BLACK WHITEBOARD marker pens



Table Layout

  • Round tables are ideal, but we can live with rectangular layouts
  • Tables should not be against the walls; we are using the walls as a working area in this course.
  • Distribute the tables throughout the room



Computers, Software and Networking

  • Internet access for the coach; it is not needed for the participants
