Techniques to make planning fun

Planning can be boring. What methods do you use to make it more fun?


Please note that tickets are only available 2 weeks before the event.


We encourage members to take photographs during our sessions. If you are not happy for images of you to be posted on the internet/used to publicise the group, please do not attend this event.


The event will be held in the upstairs room at The Plumbers Arms. The sessions are informal and we are happy for you to eat the pub grub / drink during the meetup (the pies are pretty nice).

The pub's site gives directions: http://www.taylor-walker.co.uk/pub/plumbers-arms-belgravia/c0685/

Here's their map:

    David,

    Many thanks for that. Can you tell me when the next meet-up is please so that I can put a note in my diary to look out for it when the two weeks window opens up?

    Thanks and kind regards
    Paul

      You'll be on the waitlist for the next one already! There's no invites go out unless you've already attended, and even then they can be a little late - this is the hottest ticket on meetup! Look on this page http://www.meetup.com...­ for the meeting schedule, pop the day after in your diary to book up for the next one after that.

      Cheers Jodi. Paul, glad you're still keen to come but it's best to pick a ticket up as soon as the previous session ends as that's when tickets become available (ie 8pm a fortnight before the session). Hope that makes sense.

    The book I was talking about was "Influence: the power of persuasion" by Cialdini - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Influence-Psychology-Robert-PhD-Cialdini/dp/006124189X

    This one seemed a bit laboured. But still think we got some benefit and interesting ideas.

    Thanks, I enjoyed!

    So interesting to hear how different people work in Agile teams and some good ideas on how to make planning fun :)

    Could've done with more people who have fun planning... obviously this is an area that needs more work! Still, a good round up of things that might make it not so crap!

    Bummer! Was on the waitlist, ended up making other plans and now I've just been confirmed a spot and I can't come. Sounds like a really good session particularly for Product Owners (like myself).

  • Ionica N.

    Sorry I cannot come today. I hope to join the next one.

  • Ian D.

    Gutted that something has come up which means i can't attend, have freed my spot up. Hope to join the next meet up

    I'm not able to attend due to work commitments so someone on the waiting list is lucky :)
