In 2021 I’m back at OOP conference, doing a mini-workshop on collaborative problem-solving. Join me online, February 8-12, 2021.
Problem? What Problem? Practice Collaborative Problem-solving
Working in teams we face problems in our daily work. As a team, we should be able to solve problems collaboratively. Agile calls these problems impediments.
Impediments can be something in the way of working, processes, tools, or organizational rules or structures. They can also be something cultural or structural.
In this mini-workshop, we’ll practice solving an impediment as a team. Next, we’ll explore how we solved it, how we worked together. What hindered and helped us. We’ll learn what we can do to collaborate better.
Target Audience: Scrum masters, tech leads, agile coaches, consultants, developers, testers, managers, CxOs
Prerequisites: Some experience of working in teams
This is a hands-on mini-workshop about collaborative problem-solving. It will be an interactive session where people work together to solve a problem in a kind of role-play. Next, we’ll explore the behaviors that arose, focusing on what helps and hinders collaboration.
I’ll kick it off by presenting problem-solving techniques and tips for collaborative problem-solving and dealing with impediments.
During the session, we’ll split up into groups using breakout rooms. In each group, a part of the attendees will do a role play where they work on a problem, where others will be observing how this goes. If time permits, we’ll rotate solving two impediments.
Next, the observers will share what they saw happening where the group discusses this.
