Sometimes it is difficult to get valuable feedback from a session you arranged. Just asking for a number or one quote most of the time won’t bring what you expect. This exercise allows you to get qualitative and quantitative feedback in your sessions. Getting both is the key to start learning. Only one figure (quantitive) won’t help and qualitative feedback is time-consuming.
This exercise is great to use with any team. This way of feedback is especially sooted for a session let by someone. For example a scrum master/product owner or Prototyping.Work facilitator. This also is useful for digital meetings, because you do not have to speak. Also for introvert people, this makes feedback giving a lot easier.
What steps to take for the practice
When you have the possibility to come together physically, you only need a Flipover, post-its for each team member and markers.
When doing this online, you will need a tool like Miro, but a powerpoint presentation which you can share is also a possibility.
You can use the matrix as attached to this practice. Just draw it or download it and use it in Miro/Powerpoint or any other digital solution. It consists of two axes: Fun and value. By creating the matrix, you can specify if a meeting was boring and had no value (waste of time) to a lot of fun and great value (more of these).
Ask your team members to think where they want to put their post-it first. And after that, ask them to write down why on that post-it. Now be sure to use the whole quadrant. So the higher the post-it will be put, the more fun the session was. Make this really clear, so you can get a good view of the intention of the post-it.
You will get both qualitative as quantitive feedback in an easy and open way. Because you use post-its, people won’t get biased by other ones' opinions.
