Instead of getting together at the end of a sprint and asking:
- what are we doing well
- what could we be doing better
The gets together at the end of the day, sits in a circle, and everyone gets a chance to say anything on their mind. The only requirement is the sentence must start with:
- I like …
- I wish …
- I wonder …
This seems like a nice, open, gently way to let people vent, congratulate, speculate, and release whatever is on their mind.
Stanford School of Design (dschool) positions this as more of a feedback tool for getting feedback on designs, but I think it’s super useful and could be applied in just about any context.
