Every meeting room contains a set of facilitation tools. A simple, inexpensive timer that encourages meetings or workshops to stay on time. Stationery for teams to sketch, capture notes, or visualize on whiteboards in the moment. (No time-wasting searches for a whiteboard marker!) Finally, we have our rubber chickens. Yes, that’s correct. Rubber chickens. If someone is dominating a meeting, or rambling off topic, simply grab the chicken, squeeze it and it makes a terrible noise. This gets the meeting back on track. (And gets the message across with humor, not animosity.) These simple tools have been adopted by every team to help facilitate collaboration.

To make it different from many Android phones. And to replace the circular home button as a characteristic feature of the iPhone.
