The feedback method "I like, I wish, how would it be if ..." helps and motivates teams to give open and structured feedback on ideas and to formulate them.

The method is just as suitable for small groups as it is for large groups. Through the feedback slips - which are gladly distributed and prepared in advance - you can

All participants first write down their feedback and then read it out in a sequence determined by the moderator. For large groups, not everyone has to read aloud - maybe only those who want to.

An example could be: "I like the interactive presentation of product ideas through role-playing games. I wish we could get the audience more involved next time. How about we practice this in advance?"

Ideally, the individual sentences should build on each other. Thus one gets feedback and at the same time improvement suggestions to the idea. In addition, you reduce duplication or the protective statement: "That's what I wanted to say."
