TOOL | Rose, Bud, Thorn

Tools, Evaluation, Community Innovation

How can we effectively solicit feedback on new ideas and programs? The Rose, Bud, Thorn framework is a great way to gather input from a large group. It creates space for different types of thinkers and contributors to share their feedback and provides structure to keep feedback conversations on topic.

Using the Rose, Bud, Thorn tool will help you gather feedback that does not focus only on either criticism or praise, make it easy and more comfortable for others to provide input, and visually identify similarities or differences in feedback.
