This is a classic business technique used to keep meetings and workshops focused on track. During discussions, questions will often emerge that are important but not fully relevant to the focus at the moment. These questions or issues are “parked” on a flipchart, to be addressed and answered later. This practice helps ensure that important questions do not get lost and helps keep focus on the relevant matters for the time being.
The purpose with this technique is to acknowledge an issue, write it down and park it to keep other more important things for the present time on track, and get back to the parked issue when you have time.
