Have you ever been part of a mind-mapping session where there are too many options or concepts to consider? Have you ever facilitated a retrospective with so many topics for discussion you don’t know where to start?

Dot voting is a quick and simple tool to help teams make decisions on prioritization swiftly and collectively, but there are a few rules to follow.
