Facilitation tools without in-depth knowledge of the topic (timeboxing vs. death duck)

Have you ever been invited as a facilitator to a discussion whose topic you didn’t fully understand? Technical improvement or facilitating a management meeting, these are also pitfalls that we may encounter in our work. Let’s take a look together at how to make these challenges easier.
In this workshop, we will address this challenge and explore two different approaches to effectively leading such discussions: timeboxing and the “duck of death” model.
During the workshop, we will introduce, test and discuss the benefits and limitations of these methodologies together. Interactive exercises will help us gain practical experience with these tools and increase our preparedness for future similar sessions.

Martin Ribarič

Martin likes to refer to himself as “crazy”. A crazy person who likes to try new things and learn from them. You could say he lives empiricism in practice. When you combine that with the joy of making things work, the equation results in a Scrum Master, which Martin has been for over 4 years. Through his work at Softwarehouse, he has gained a lot of experience with different types of project management as well as with teams of different sizes and numbers. His main focus is on team development and efficiency, but he is not afraid of other topics either. Outside of work, you can most often find him in the mountains or over a chess board.
