Morning all! Welcome to the week - here's your regular shot of reading material; remember to pass it on to anyone you think might enjoy the read!

Don't forget - if you're in London on September 7th, we'd love to see you at the first CTO Craft panel event. See you there!

TMW is hand-compiled every Monday morning, drawing the best writing from around the web on engineering leadership, motivating and hiring developers, agile and product management methodologies, data science and much more.

Check out the TMW Archive. There's some real treasure in there.

Poster Session (#91)

Split a large group into smaller ones that create posters

After you've identified an important topic in the previous phase you can now go into detail. Have the larger group split up into groups of 2-4 people that will each prepare a poster (flip chart) to present to the other groups. If you have identified more than one main topic, let the team members select on which they want to work further.
Give the teams guidelines about what the posters should cover / answer, such as:

  • What exactly happens? Why is that a problem?
  • Why / when / how does this situation happen?
  • Who benefits from the current situation? What is the benefit?
  • Possible solutions (with Pros and Cons)
  • Who could help change the situation?
  • ... whatever is appropriate in your setting ...The groups have 15-20 minutes to discuss and create their posters. Afterwards gather and each group gets 2 minutes to present their results.

That's it!

If you know someone who'd benefit from receiving TMW, send them here: Tech Manager Weekly.

Have an amazing week, and see you next Monday!
