Ways of communicating, how we learn
While going through one of my presentations I found this slide with such important information that I want to go through it again and above all share it with you.
It’s not something new, but I’ll just write it down here, even for my own sake.. for those days when I want this info and I can’t find it anywhere among the zillions of pages in the web.
This is about how we communicate with each other. In other words the so called Cone of Learning (or Cone of Experience).
There are some nice pics in the web, but because I don’t want to go over any copyrights, I just draw this one for us (I like to put it on the wall for all our teams to see it and
maybe reflect on it) . You can also use it as you please (within the limits of decency ;>)
And this my friends is why we use things like the 3’cs when writing user stories or specification by example when analysing and defining stories.
In my very own opinion that’s why Scrum Masters should always try to coach people rather than just focusing on doing the Scrum Master stuff. We should aim to teach people to do stuff than just do it ourselves. Doing is the best way to lean and keep knowledge in our big and wise human brains.
So there you go. Lesson to all of us. We should spend our time DOING meaningful things ( as in things that matter to you, things you are passionate about) . It’s the only way we can actually make that little dent everyone talks about.
Have a nice day,
