The Silence of Agile: Steve Rogalsky

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We've all sat through painful requirements, planning, and brainstorming sessions that provide little useful output and where the outcome was already decided by the loudest few before the meeting even started. Learn how silence can increase collaboration and help your agile project be more productive. Silent brainstorming allows everyone to have a voice – the loud people can’t dominate the conversation, the quiet people are provided with a way to contribute, and cognitive fixation is reduced. We’ll discuss the science of brainstorming and then practice several silent brainstorming techniques in order to generate a user story map, do agile chartering, brainstorm a list of user stories, prioritize your user stories, and generate ideas for your retrospective.
