This technique does not emphasize group interaction. It is especially useful for untrained groups because there is no interaction between group members and all ideas are directed towards the facilitator and scribe.
1. The problem owner simply presents his problem and the ideal situation he is looking for.
2. Then he gives simple background on routes he has tried and have failed, and what would represent an ideal solution.

4. The facilitator focuses on those ideas that he finds most helpful and give him new viewpoints
