How does this help your team?
We designed this tried-and-tested workshop to help Scrum Teams think about the value of (Sprint) goals. Although many Scrum Teams consider them optional, Sprint Goals are really at the heart of how you can successfully navigate complex work. With this string, you create transparency around what happens without Sprint Goals or with Sprint Goals that are unclear. And more importantly, what you can do as a team to improve - together!
How does it work?
The PDF outlines a detailed 5-step tried-and-tested 90-minute workshop that relies on Liberating Structures to engage and unleash your team. The string is designed with virtual teams in mind and includes:
- Impromptu Networking
- Conversation Café
- Wise Crowds
- 15% Solutions
This string of Liberating Structures is feasible from 4 participants and onward. We've successfully scaled it up to 100 participants (both virtually and in-person) without significant issues.
What do you receive?
- A 10+ page full-color guide (PDF).
- We take you through the flow of the string in great detail. Not only do we explain all the steps involved, but we also explain why they are happening. This should make it easier to design your own strings in the future.
- The instructions support all virtual collaboration tools where you can create breakouts our separate channels occasionally (such as Zoom, GotoWebinar, and Teams). You can set up an additional virtual whiteboard in a tool like Mural, Google Slides, or Miro if you prefer.
- The PDF outlines additional resources and useful reading, both to prepare and to distribute afterward.
