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!

The CTO Craft Community is now an amazing 430 CTOs, Heads of Engineering, Development Managers and Lead Engineers of all shapes and sizes, and the conversations have been amazing. If you would like to know more about joining the Community or attending one of our regular Mentoring Circles, fill in your details here, and we'll be in touch!



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

Meeting Satisfaction Histogram (#87)

Create a histogram on how well ritual meetings went during the iteration

Prepare a flip chart for each meeting that recurs every iteration, (e.g. the Scrum ceremonies) with a horizontal scale from 1 ('Did not meet expectations') to 5 ('Exceeds Expectations'). Each team member adds a sticky note based on their rating for each of these meetings. Let the team discuss why some meetings do not have a rating of 5. 
You can discuss improvements as part of this activity or in a later activity such as Perfection Game (#20) or Plus \& Delta (#40).

That's it!

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

Have an amazing week!
