Once done, they can post it on the other side of the whiteboard to mark the beginning of a story thread.
Give each team a newspaper and ask them to come up with headlines about what they think the company or the department will achieve in the upcoming future. They can either take newspaper clippings and paste them or write the headlines directly on the whiteboard.
