- Making virtual retrospectives fun – change them up, craft retrospectives into a story (Recess does this), remember the future (where would you be if you had the most awesome sprint ever)
- The next thing in Agile just sounds like Agility!
- No apologies meeting rule for children, dogs or ringing the bell…
- Build Your Own Scrum in a virtual world works well on Miro and Mural (and the exercise started as an accidental panic!)
