Delegation Poker

In this very interactive workshop we enable a team or even a whole organization to put the ownership where it should actually be

What's it all about?

The “Delegation Poker” workshop is a dynamic and interactive experience that fosters smart collaboration within teams by clarifying decision-making processes and responsibilities. It is structured around a gamified approach to openly discuss and define who is accountable for various tasks and decisions within an organization. This clarity promotes efficient and agile teamwork.

Key Ingredients

  1. Interactive Brainstorming: Teams begin with a brain dump to identify decision-making areas that require attention, ensuring everyone’s voice is heard right from the start.
  2. Strategic Gameplay: Through a silent poker betting system, team members individually reflect on current and desired states of decision-making authority, promoting introspection without the pressure of group dynamics.
  3. Constructive Dialogue: A carefully structured speaking round allows each participant to share their rationale behind their poker bets, fostering a culture of understanding without descending into counterproductive debate.
  4. Consensus-Building: Post-discussion, the team revisits their bets, now with the benefit of having heard diverse perspectives, moving towards consensus in the best interest of the team and the organization.
  5. Actionable Outcomes: The final step involves translating the agreements into concrete actions, detailing the who, what, when, where, and how of implementation, and then committing to these decisions on a delegation board for accountability.
  6. Reiterative Process: The workshop is designed to be iterative; as teams tackle different themes, they can repeat the process, thereby continually refining their collaborative processes.

This workshop is not just a one-time event but a methodological tool that teams can reuse to adapt and thrive in the face of new challenges or changing team dynamics.
