Formulations And The Facilitation Of Common Agreement In Meetings Talk
To make the process of identifying formulations systematic, we followed the distinction between Heritage and Watson (1979) between formulations that extract the general meaning of the previous conference (or “core”) and formulations that emerge from it the relevant implication (or “outcome”).

2004; Eden and Ackermann 2010). The map was used by workshop participants to identify a number of policy issues and their perceived impacts. To build the map, participants gathered in the workshop room and sat around small tables arranged in a horseshoe layout, with a console laptop for each table. The consoles were connected to a master laptop, controlled by the main animator who controlled the consoles and compiled the team`s contributions, then spread them out on a large public screen at the front of the workshop room. The screen was visible to all participants and provided a priority around which group discussions on strategic issues were held. Subscribers` messages were collected anonymously through the consoles and displayed quickly on the screen during entry and via the content facilitator….
