FIND OUT HOW TO USE KUDO CARDS IN AGILE RETROSPECTIVES

In this post, I will explain a very simple exercise: I will explain how to use Kudo Cards in Agile Retrospectives.

I believe that what I am going to describe is probably not new for most of you (or at least nothing new in its original format), but nonetheless, I still believe not enough people are using Kudo cards, and for that reason, I want to explain their relevance.

If you are interested in getting some extra Agile Retrospectives exercises, I created a blog post with dozens of Agile Retrospectives Ideas, check them and see if you find something interesting.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO GET OUT OF THIS EXERCISE

In our society, it is quite common to reward people with money for good behavior; I believe this is quite wrong, and I believe there are other and better ways to reward unusual behavior.

Jurgen Appelo, for example, says:

“There are many wrong ways to reward employees. A simple but effective approach is the use of kudo cards, which enables people to give each other small tokens of appreciation.”

Through the utilization of this exercise, you can expect team members to feel appreciated by each other. I believe that most of us are so busy with our daily activities that we forget to appreciate what others do for the team or us.
