Draw me a picture

Draw me a picture is a retrospective technique that can be used when people are tired of the same old routine and when verbal communications are failing.

The process is as follows:
  1. Ask the attendees to silently reflect on the on the events of the last iteration or release 
  2. Ask them to draw a picture reflecting their feelings 
  3. Place the picture on the wall
  4. In turn, let each participant describe their picture and provide a title
  5. Try to observe patterns to highlight significant events or impediment
