DEMING'S RED BEAD Experiment Replayed

I recently became aware of this experiment which Deming used to do in front of large audiences (e.g. 1200 people). Thanks to David and Benjamin the experiment comes to live again. It is worth watching at least the first 50 minutes and see for yourself this amazing story of processes, metrics, management, rewards and people.

The Cool Wall Retrospective

Inspired by Mark Summer's post we decided to do a Cool Wall style joint team retrospective at the end of last sprint. These are scrum teams that work on the same project and often have cross team impediments or reasons to be proud.

It worked quite well, team said they liked it so we're doing it again. For more details on the technique check Mark's blog here
