Are you looking for a faster way to make decisions within your team? Are you looking for a way to unlock creativity within your team? 

The Lightning Decision Jam is a fast-paced decision-making process. This highly participatory workshop will take participants through the steps involved in the LDJ, using a pre-designed scenario.

The process of the LDJ aligns a group with clear actions required to progress and work towards the same vision. It is a way to get a group of people all on the same page, identify problems from all angles, generate solutions and create action points to test.


Participants will learn how to replace open, unstructured discussion with clear processes where structure creates the freedom needed to be creative. 


The Lightning Decision Jam is a tool that any manager, supervisor or team leader can use which will assist in replacing unstructured discussions with an easy way to make faster decisions.


After successful completion of this workshop, it is expected participants will understand the Lightning Decision Jam process, be able to apply this back into their workplace and have the tools and techniques to be able to:

  • Capture what is currently working
  • Capture all of the problems
  • Prioritise problems
  • Reframe problems and standardise challenges
  • Generate ideas without discussion
  • Decide which solutions to prioritise
  • Decide what to execute
  • Make solutions actionable
