I introduce the 4 Myth or Fact stations I set up prior to starting the exercise:

You’ll notice that we have for Myth or Fact stations around the room. You’re going to break yourselves into 3 groups [groups of 5-9], and each group will pick a different station at which to start. Let’s do that now.

Great! Now that you’re at your station, you’ll notice that it has ‘Who / When / Why’ labels and a blank spot for you to write in facts for each. Take a couple minutes now as a team and fill that out. For the ‘When’ section, you can do it in relation to other meetings if you like: ‘after sprint review’ or ‘at the beginning of the sprint’.

Alright. Now that you’ve got that filled out, here’s what we’re going to do. I’m going to give you 5 minutes to answer the 10 questions at that station. You can write down the answers in your workbooks. You’ll be deciding if the statement on the front of the card is a Myth - something that is not true, or a Fact - something that, well, is a fact. Figure it out as a team, and when you agree, flip the card over and see if you were right.

If you have any questions that confuse you, make a note of that and we’ll discuss them at the end.

After your 5 minutes are up, even if you’re not done with all 10 questions, I’m going to ask everyone to rotate clockwise to the next station. We’ll then repeat the exercise of answering the questions in a 5 minute timebox. We’ll do this a couple more times until every group has stopped at each station.

Lastly, the first time we rotate, one of the groups is going to have to fill out an extra ‘Who / When / Why’ poster since we have 3 teams and four stations.

Any questions? Go!”

Start your timer for 5 minutes. Rinse. Repeat 3 more times.
