I run a lot of workshops, including planning workshops and retrospectives. Sometimes the crew votes on things like “what is the best feature, or how did we go this time.”
But sometimes we collect data and then want to discuss it as a team. And this presents a challenge – I like data in a spreadsheet and I like pictures on the wall but sometimes it seems hard to capture numbers in a useful way in the workshop.
But do not fear – the River Diagram is here and this is exactly what it is for.
