Post-It Wars: Bring It On!

Today I entered the world of Post-It Wars. I have a feeling life is going to be somehow different from now on. In a good way.

Work Should be Fun!

We had come to the end of a long day of planning and product strategy. A very productive day, but exhausting for everyone. John, one of the development managers, said “Let’s try something fun for 10 minutes”. He showed us an online article in the Guardian about something very cool happening in France. Some office workers there have started to create window art with Post-It Notes. They look amazing. We had to try it.

We only had a few minutes, so we quickly settled on one to try out. Here it is, our very first entry into Post-It Wars. The start of something big, I suspect.

I took some pictures form the outside on my way home:

I showed the photos to my kids when I got home. They loved it. They want to come in at the weekend and make one.

Anyone for Post-It Wars at ALE2011?

This would be a great activity for next week’s ALE Conference too. We’ve got a special program for spouses and children, so whole families could take part. We could have each country build one. We could have everyone build one huge one. Check out these amazing ones from France. I’m excited. Bring lots of Post-Its!

Take up the Challenge

The gauntlet is down. I’m going to try to start a competition between our agile teams at work. Let’s see who can come up with the best Post-It art. I see a lot of potential in this as an activity during retrospectives, project kick-offs, or generally just to have some fun. Try it out at work with your teams. I can’t wait to see your pictures.
