Retrospective Activity of the Week

Three by Three (#125)

Build on each other's ideas to create a great action item

This silent brainstorming technique helps the team come up with truly creative solutions and gives quiet people equal footing: 

  • Everyone writes 3 sticky notes with 1 action idea each
  • Go around the room and pitch each idea in 15 seconds
  • Gather all stickies so that everyone can see them
  • Each team member adds their name to the sticky note that inspires them the most
  • Take off all ideas without a name on them
  • Repeat this process 2 more times. Afterwards, everyone can dot vote to determine which action(s) the team is going to implement.

That's all folks! Have a great week, and remember to pass this on to anyone who might gain from the read.
