Projector effect

When you are in a Scrum planning session or any other kind of Scrum event or at a meeting, look closely how people behave when there is a computer screen projected on the wall.

What happens most of time is this:
  • nobody looks at others,
  • everybody look at the projected screen (or a monitor, if there is no projector),
  • people stare at the slides even though they have already read them 5 times,
  • and worst of all: people tend to turn off their regular intellectual abilities and day-dream to the subtle noise of projector's fan
If you do use computer at the meetings, specifically during Scrum events, try out this advice and stop using it. Even for a couple of meetings. I am sure you will see the difference.

The mere fact that product development is going to be done on computers and that the product will run on a computer doesn't mean that every aspect of our work must be done with a computer.
