Retrospective: Aliens

We've been fantasizing about aliens 👽 for so long that they've now come back to visit us at the end of our sprint. Are you excited about their visit? Well, at least they didn't come mid-sprint otherwise that would've caused havoc, am I right?

    A trip of a lifetime 
    Would you give up 15 years on Earth in exchange for a 2-week trip with an Alien to the ends of the Universe? A chilling icebreaker, isn't it? 

    A helping hand 
    Rumours are that these aliens have visited Earth before and have helped us build some magnificent structures like the pyramids. Like it or not, let's reflect on what went well. 

    But what if...? 
    There are also other theories that once this portal to extraterrestrial life opens up, some unfriendly aliens can escape into our reality. If that happens, that will certainly not go down well. Anyway, that's a 'what if'. For now, perhaps jot down things that didn't go well during the last sprint? 

    That's it. Happy retrospective!

  • Instructions: This board walks users through different exercises to strategically plan out a conservation or development project with a team. Start by determining the project scope and completing a situational analysis (threat analysis) to develop a concept model. Turn it into a theory of change and select key outcomes to develop SMART objectives. From there you can develop indicators, activities, timelines, conduct a risk assessment or analyze potential partners. To help manage the project team you can design an organogram, outline roles and responsibilities and create a RACI table. It is best to do project planning with the whole project team including your Comms, Finance, Fundraising staff and external project partners.

A few words to our friends at MIRO...

Thank you for inviting submissions for the "Miroverse Challenge: Team Connection"! We are new to MIRO--and excited to offer this entry.

We help groups and individuals create space for focused reflection and learning. One way we do this is through designing meeting structures that support people in having the same conversation at the same time.

Well-designed, small moments have the power to create connection, deep appreciation, and even lighthearted laughter.

The brief activity outlined in our template allows team members to connect and network in a very low-pressure way. It has enough flexibility to allow the meeting facilitator/team leader to add fresh customized prompts to the pool of conversation prompts.

We decided to create an ICE BREAKER template that could be used regularly during team meetings AND during a stand-alone gathering. We kept it simple. We used frames, shapes, and sticky notes.

  • Instructions on how to use the template - 

    This template works great as an ice breaker or fun team building activity putting a Miro spin on the popular Guess Who game!

     

    RULES

     

    1. Divide into 2 equal teams one for the red tray and one for blue

     

    2. As a team secretly select a face card and place beneath the Target Card (using PgDn)

     

    3. Alternate turns asking one question that can be answered yes or no

     

    4. Eliminate appropriate face cards using the blocker cards to screen out incorrect face cards

     

    5. Keep taking turns asking questions until someone thinks they can guess who is on the opponent's Target Card

     

    6. When you are ready to guess who is on the Mystery Card, make your guess on your turn instead of asking a question. You cannot ask a question and guess on the same turn.

    If you guess wrong, you lose the game!

    If you guess right, you win the game!

     

    BONUS CHALLENGE - For extra difficulty select an extra Target Face cards and try to work out who your opponent has selected using "both" and "either" questions to eliminate potential matches!

    I hope this is a fun exercise in your team and drives engagement and conversations!

  • Instructions on how to use the template:

    This template is built around the Open Space method and helps make it digital. With this template, you can easily run an Open Space session online!

    The instructions below don't explain the method itself — for this, please refer to the original source by Harrison Owen (https://openspaceworld.org/wp2/hho/papers/brief-users-guide-open-space-technology/). 

    A couple of technicalities about how to work with the template:
    1. Use the Pool of Topics to collect topics sourced from the participants.
    2. With help of the Miro timer make the topics pitching short and sexy.
    3. Assign the topics to the "kiosks" to set up the schedule.
    4. Copy the topic sticky notes to the working areas.
    5. Harvest what's happened in the breakouts in the end.

What’s Feedback Action Plan?

Feedback Action Plan is a strategic planning framework for organisations to boost team alignment and run productive meetings through gather, review, and take actions on the feedback that's relevant to the organisation’s goal all in one single page.

Why Feedback Action Plan?

During team meetings, the facilitator can 

  • Align the team to move from personal opinions (feedbacks) to greater clarity on the actions to take. 
  • Empower teams to continuously improve by turning constructive feedback into productive actions
  • Incorporating valuable feedback to improve the innovation process

How does the Feedback Action Plan work?

The Feedback Action Plan incorporates the learnings from the feedback they have received from “I like, I wish, I wonder” and turn them into actionable steps at “We will amplify, We will address, We will implement” to create valuable changes.

"I like, I wish, and I wonder" was inspired by the work from Stanford, IDEO, and Hyper Island, and I designed the framework "We will amplify, we will address, and we will implement".
