Last week Sarah and I were honoured to run a workshop at Agile Tour. Our workshop posed the challenge to attendees to go “From post it to prototype in 90 min”. Could we go through Discovery and Alpha, from problem statement to paper prototype, including introducing a product delivery framework, a simulated scenario and a toolkit of techniques to use.
Learning and sharing is a key ingredient within Pragmateam’s culture. While we have a very healthy internal shareback rhythm (more about this later) we also actively seek ways to give back to the community, sharing our techniques, experiments and learnings.
Every workshop we do to kick off a project has some aspect of team building in it. The main reasons of course are to allow people to get to know each other, to feel comfortable working with each other, and to break the mould of the day-to-day.
As facilitators we have many tips and tricks in our toolkit. But of all them, “icebreakers” tend to get the most apprehensive reaction.
