In the Pump stage, team members pump the balloons that they like, support, or want to see put into action. Each person has one pump per balloon, so you can either pump each one, or not. Again, it’s completely anonymous, so balloons are pumped based on merit, not based on the popularity of the balloon creator or on an internal pecking order. Also, a total pump count isn't shown, so there is no groupthink or bandwagon effect impacting outcomes and balloon performance.
