Together with a team of Agile Coaches that I worked with some time ago, we designed a team discovery, that is, for each new team that began in the agile transformation we were supporting. The first activity we did with them was Personal Maps. This was an activity for a whole team.
How I did it
I commented on the importance of knowing ourselves as members of a team, as well as building an identity and recognizing our roles within a team.
I presented Personal maps, I had my map ready and I explained them to them.
After clarifying any doubt, each team member could complete their own individually, for about 10 minutes.
Once everyone finished, I asked them to share their maps one by one, their classmates could ask about information that caught their attention.
Already finishing, I asked them to share, what things caught their peers' attention and then invited them to paste their maps into a space on the wall that they will share in their day to day.
What went well
What didn't go so well
Not waiting long enough for everyone to finish their personal maps, it is better to contemplate enough time for everyone to share.
The map of each of the team members was made, some practiced sports in common and joined in that activity. They commented that this same level of closeness without having used the game would have taken longer to generate.
