March 10, we’ve organised a new workshop. The topic: Liberating Structures.
HOW CAN YOU AS <ROLE> FAIL AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE
As outcome we made a list with all our destructive ideas. Next we inspired everyone to actually think about ‘real life’, what are we actually doing based on the the destructive ideas. Using 1,2,4,all, a new list popped up. Based on this list we tried to identify actions to prevent us from doing any destructive actions again.
So our main take aways:
- Always have an agenda
- Make use of time-boxing
- Listen to others
- Really(!) listen
- Weigh their answers carefully
- Ask often: Why is that important for you?
- Summarise and ask questions
Later in the week Arend reminded us:
who already started to listen better….
So it is important to pair up and check-in once and a while.
So now it is upon the team. Dive in to the book, cards, internet, the LS APP and try to apply a (or more) Liberating Structures on eachother. Two groups started to craft their own LS-Strings.
GroupA choose the EcoCycle Planning to learn what they need to do in order to improve their workshops. Their topic:
How do we become the lead in the market facilitation Agile Workshops.
See the result here:
A lot of take aways to update their business plans.
GroupB focussed on a real scrum master opportunity, how can I facilitate a DoD over multiple teams. Using Purpose to Practice we crafted ideas how to facilitate a multi-team event to design a common Definition-of-Done as used in Scrum teams.
Actually, the Tuesday following the event, this practice had been exectued for real. Teams were practicing the Liberating Structures to find a DoD for all teams.
