How to conduct this activity

This activity compares the sprint to a basketball game and helps team members to better understand their position. Ask each participant to consider the work they performed in the last sprint in the following categories: Shoot: What tasks did I complete? Assist: How I was able to help my teammates? Pass: What help did I receive? Position: What role do I consider to fill on the team? Ask the group to think of names for roles on the team, similar to basketball’s center and guard. This list can include job titles, but you should encourage the team to think outside the box. For example, does anyone have a special talent to reunite the team when things are not going well (ie a morale booster)? Remember that people probably play multiple roles. End this session by asking the group to think about a goal and how they can use their new understanding of teamwork to achieve it.
