Truth or DareGreat ideas sometime come from surprising places.

My 11 year old son, Jonathan, came out of the blue with an idea for retrospectives:

Take a bottle, and put it in the middle of a circle where the team is having their retrospective.

Someone turns the bottle, much like in Truth or Dare.

When the bottle stops, the person the bottle points at answers:

What did I learn? What did I know?

The team does this in turns, until everyone talks.

Use it a a data-gathering technique, and continue with a dot-voting to decide what to do. Or use it as a fun closing technique.

(Some will find it useful to mention here that the bottle should be on the floor, and not, heaven forbid, on a meeting room table. I will spare you the embarrassment and refrain from such silly comments).

Short, sweet and fun!
