Tanzu Talk: Better, more decisive meetings

November 10, 2020

Most meetings should result in a decision. However, most meetings are not run well enough to get a decision. Today, I summarize the method Pivotal Labs uses to find The One Thing to Work On. It's from the book Radically Collaborative Patterns for Software Makers. ---- 00:00 - The agenda. 03:27 - The point of a meeting is to make a decision. 04:30 - An example of a decision. 05:51 - The facilitator. 07:36 - Examples of decisions made, esp. application modernization. 10:04 - From many to one - finding the ONE thing, ignoring the others. 13:04 - Getting people to write down all their ideas. 14:37 - Rip up five ideas. 17:22 - Go over the ideas on a wall. 18:52 - Several passes at prioritizing, by easy/valuable. 21:07 - Ranking what’s left. 22:37 - Mind-tricks to encourage collaboration. 24:27 - Mind-trick: Just start, even if it's dumb.
