The common denominator in Round Tables (RT)  discussions is that an agenda with key questions and objectives is prepared and disseminate before the event. Some of the RT are very structured and some are more loosely facilitated.

Eventually a report is prepared summarizing key findings and recommendations. This note is presenting different methodological approaches for structuring such RT discussions and provides a methodological background for researchers in a variety of fields.

Specifically, we present four approaches to Round Table Workshops:

  1. Workshops seeking inputs from international experts [Method 1].
  2. Workshops involving the rating of alternative scenarios [Method 2].
  3. Workshops aiming at the implementation of Quality Function Deployment (QFD) methods [Method 3].
  4. A methodology for effective listening, speaking and responding during RT sessions [Method 4].
