“Can I make one person’s day a little bit easier?” This powerful question helps Stacey focus on her role as the Scrum Master for Agile teams, but it also helps her be pragmatic about the choices that inevitably come. In this episode, we also talk about the importance of collecting feedback often, and one question that helps us focus on the team at all times!
Featured Retrospective Format for the Week: Focusing the team on “the most important thing”
Stacey shares with us a format she designed to help the team focus on “The Most Important Thing”. This format focuses each team member on the thing they most care about, and uses familiar facilitation techniques to avoid taking too many actions out of the retrospective.
Retrospectives, planning sessions, vision workshops, we are continuously helping teams learn about how to collaborate in practice! In this Actionable Agile Tools book, Jeff Campbell shares some of the tools he’s learned over a decade of coaching Agile Teams. The pragmatic coaching book you need, right now!
