A Catalog of retrospective activities for high performing agile teams
Sounds like a great idea to get the team members focused on where they want to go rather than on the common "whatif-thoughts" that fills up the brains of engineers when thinking about the future.I will try this!
Thanks for the great inspiration Paulo!I changed it to "Facebook from the future" and expanded it with voting in the form of "like buttons" (on post-its) and comments where we wrote actions that had lead to each future status message. Now we have prioritized actions for the teams to work with.I got loads of positive feedback from the two teams I tried it with and I'm thinking about trying this with a management team as well.
I love the Facebook version (with Like buttons)! Do you have any photos to share? thanks a bunch,Paulo
No good pictures, sorry. I'll try to keep it in mind when I use it again.
I just used this activity, here is the output: http://flic.kr/p/ebAkjX. We had a lot of fun :)
