In a previous role, I was amongst a group of people in our head office who were responsible for testing the new database software. The group of people were strangers and a mix of all departments to try and gain opinions and advice from all levels of hierarchy and areas of the company.
The group of attendees needed to be put into groups to test certain areas of the software which were set up at computer stations, and then the groups would move around the circle of computer stations, so everyone had a chance to view and test each part of the software.
The groups were randomly picked and people assigned themselves certain positions, based on what they currently did in the company. For example, if there was an IT professional, they naturally offered to look at the more detailed side of the software. If a manager was present, they would engage the team and encourage verbal feedback. As I worked in administration at the time, i remember taking notes and asking for feedback from people, to properly record any doubts, problems about the software.
I think these groups worked well. My only criticism would be that the groups would sometimes become distracted due to the freedom of being left to work on their own, and whilst around new people, everyone was enthusiastic to get to know each other better to become more comfortable in this social situation – I feel this should have been done before being separated into groups through an icebreaker.
