We time boxed this in a different way after LIF 4, round 1:
- Write for 5 min. Limit yourself to 2 post-its. One for +, one for Delta
- Feedback, each person gets 2 minutes.
- 5 minutes for clarifying questions.
Explicit instruction is that this format is just to get the point/observation across. Deeper talks are for after.
We also tried a mood=graph for the whole program. Although useful, we decided the mood graph would be a better tool for a daily retro.
It would be very interesting to collect this, and then turn it into a synthesis at the end. Overall this will help to design an experience for the trainers/facilitators as well, so that they can best focus, and do their job as seamlessly as possible, fully focussed on the learners.
Lastly, we went into the program evaluation itself. We looked at teach segment, and had decision to either, keep, change, shift, or scrap things in the program. Again, details on how, are left for a later date.
Overall this retro with 5 people, took 3,5 hours.
