How does this help your team?
Creating and using a Definition of Done is easy and involves three steps:
1. Create the Definition of Done
2. Use the Definition of Done
3. Take the Definition of Done to the next level
For this do-it-yourself workshop, we assume you already have a Definition of Done and your team applies the rules for each Product Backlog item. However, you do feel that there's an opportunity to raise the bar. Your team is ready to challenge themselves and to explore how to expand the Definition of Done and to validate assumptions quicker, and deliver value to stakeholders sooner. All of this without comprising quality. The team wants to see if they can build products with an even higher quality standard!
The purpose of this workshop is to diagnose the current rules of the Definition of Done and to identify where you can make improvements. The primary Liberating Structure we use is Ecocycle Planning. You can run this workshop with your team, invite other Scrum teams working on the same product, or even include your stakeholders!
How does it work?
The PDF outlines a detailed step-by-step 105-minute workshop that relies on Liberating Structures to engage and unleash your team. The string is designed with virtual teams in mind and includes:
- 1-2-4-ALL (2x)
- Ecocycle Planning
- 15% Solutions
This string of Liberating Structures is feasible from 4 participants and onward.
What do you receive?
- A 13-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 or 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.
