As you go into a new week, some thoughts about meetings. Yeah, meetings. Everybody seems to hate meetings, so why the hell do we have them? Either don’t have meetings, or do them properly, whether you’re the organiser or a participant

Oh hang on, is it time for #TrendCountdown2019? where @jevakallio and I tell you what you’re gonna be all over in 2019.

I do believe it is! 💥 Social napping!

Find someone you’re comfortable with, and invite them over for a shot of espresso followed by 20 minutes of snoozing.

I went to an agile discussion group meetup this evening, and I made a jira joke that didn’t go over very well. Tough crowd. 🤷‍♀️ Incidentally the same meetup where a prompt was "we are already agile, we don't need a scrum master", to which I wrote "we've already won a championship, we don't need our coach any more"

Have you tried the 6 hats technique for team conversations or retrospectives?

It channels people to think in different ways - problem finding, optimistic, fact based, etc.

I’ve made this pdf you can download and print to facilitate the session. Dropbox: goo.gl/v5pVJU A typical retrospective using this technique might look like this:

1. Blue hat for 5 minutes to set the stage
2. White hat to collect all the facts, no opinions (10 minutes)
3. Yellow hat to look at the things that went well (10 minutes)

Cont’d 👇

Because I’m ill at home, I’m going to dispense some wisdom. Don’t worry, it’ll be very wise.

100 things I’ve learned! 💯

I have no broadband, so there’s no risk of being distracted. 1. Whatever you do, try to do it with joy and purpose.

Don’t spend any energy from what you’re doing worrying about the other thing you chose not to do.
