Getting the Most Out of Sprint Planning with Real Time Feedback

For every project, there’s a time to gather everyone together and make all of the big decisions about where the project will go and what work needs to be done to get there. That time is the sprint planning, and in this post we’ll explain how you can use real-time feedback during your next sprint planning session. This will help you to get the most out of your meeting—and your team. Preferably during the introduction!

Here’s why it works

Getting the most out of sprint planning can be difficult because you're not there to experience first-hand how your teammates are feeling about their tasks. One way to get around this is by using live Q&A for real-time feedback in your next sprint planning meeting. It allows both you and your team members to better understand what challenges they might face. This will help you make adjustments before it's too late and save time in the long run. You can use Sendsteps for this, which is easy to use and provides the opportunity to receive feedback from all meeting attendants live or online. Live Q&As prevent miscommunication between meeting participants because it allows those watching (that is, the other team members) to share thoughts and feelings about that particular topic without interruption. The live Q&A has been shown to increase satisfaction across all levels within an organization as well as increased collaboration between departments.

Why you should include this type of session;

In many cases, sprint planning meetings are a one-way conversation. While it's crucial that everyone is on board with the plan and understands how to execute it, there are some questions that can't be answered until specific tasks have been completed. This is where live Q&A sessions come in handy. They serve as an introduction to your sprint and provide a forum for your team to ask questions before they start working on their tasks. With this type of feedback, you're getting valuable information from your team in real time so you can make changes before their work has even started!

Running the Session

The person running this session should be ready to answer any and all questions, but also make sure that they're not spending too much time doing so. In addition, it's also important for one person on your team to be responsible for documenting answers and providing them after the live Q&A has ended. This way, everyone can stay focused on asking questions and listening for answers during sprint planning instead of trying to document everything at once.

If you're looking to add an engaging and interactive element to your presentations, consider incorporating a live Q&A feature using Sendsteps. With Sendsteps, you can easily integrate a variety of interactive question types into your presentation deck. By inviting your audience to answer questions via their mobile devices, you can spark real-time engagement and participation during your sprint planning sessions.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to make your presentations more dynamic and engaging. Try using Sendsteps today and see the difference it can make!
