Learning goes both ways!  Here are some tips that have been shared by participants in my courses:

  • Tease out Assumptions by asking yourself "What things could change that would result in me changing my estimate?"
  • When trying to identify the R.A.I.D.S. of a project list everything that worries you, then classify.
Sticky Notes
  • For better stickiness, peel off sticky notes parallel to the sticky edge (as opposed to grabbing the opposite edge and ripping towards the sticky edge).

Voting techniques
  • When facilitating dot-voting consider giving participants three (say) dots to vote with, plus permission to remove one dot from an option they don't want.
