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!
