We’ve all sat through painful requirements, planning, and brainstorming sessions that provide little useful output, are painfully long, 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, walk through many agile practices that use silence, and then practice a few silent brainstorming techniques such as User Story Writing, Retrospectives, and UX Design Studio.
Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later.
