The garden of practices

by for .  

Plant a garden and use practices as seeds that you can put in your seed stock. Use a virtual (iKanban, wekan, Trello) or physical (post-its) Kanban tool to materialize this process. And when your garden is flourished, be proud of it and show it to your colleagues.

Goal

Grow practises like flowers and communicate the status / outcome

Instructions

Consider practices as seeds that you can put in your seed stock. When you decide to test a new practice, pick a seed and plant it. Your practice is considered at the status 'planted'. It will grow each time you visit your garden ONLY If you used the practice and you still consider it as useful. Then you will pass it to the status 'germinated', 'grown' and finally you will put it in your 'garden' (the list of practices you use regularly in your team and you consider useful). At any time, you may consider a practice is obsolete: Put it then in 'the compost' but the rule is: When you put something into the compost, you must get something from the compost. It means you must learn from it, and find new seeds! Use a virtual (iKanban, wekan, Trello) or physical (post-its) Kanban tool to materialize this process. And when your garden is flourished, be proud of it and show it to your colleagues.

Background

​This practice can be used by any team at any time.
