How to Facilitate a Great Game Debrief

Ilja Preuß ran a peer workshop at Play4Agile on Tips for debriefing a game. Thanks to everyone for sharing such wonderful ideas.

I synthesized this into the visual note:

The main points are:

  • Go with their energy so that it feels like a conversation.
  • Less is more: Give them space so they can debrief each other.
  • Guide their attention through powerful questions and observations.

Original flipchart photos are page 1 and page 2. I didn’t capture everything so check them out too.

I was already able to apply some of my learnings when I facilitated a game debrief later in the conference. Thanks Ilja!

His classes are controversial and unique but that’s what allows his Agile students to flourish by showing them the missing pieces and common organizational challenges you can go back and implement immediately.
