Big Room Implementation Approach

Team Members who take the assessment during the Big-Room Retrospective:

  • Core members of the team [SM, PO and Development Team]
  • Includes contractors who are members of the team
  • Does NOT include anyone who does not deliver as part of the team
  • For some assessments, including the TeamHealth® Radar, the ScrumMaster and Product Owner roles may receive additional questions that focus on quantitative data about the team. It is suggested to send these questions ahead of time to the role(s) who will answer them, so they can gather the data for the answers.

Stakeholders who should be sent the assessment ahead of time:

  • Do not attend the strategic retrospective session
  • Stakeholders are people who have a direct stake in the health and delivery of teams but are not part of the actual team [Product Mgmt., Team Leads, etc.]
  • Stakeholders receive a 2-question survey prior to the strategic retrospective and answer the following questions:
    • What is your confidence in the team?
    • Using a scale of 1 to 10; how likely are you to recommend working with this team to others?
