Plus & Delta

> End communication

The Plus & Delta activity provides a quick way to gather comments at the end of a meeting. The participants share the benefits of the event - what went well and should be continued in the future - and the deltas, what they’d recommend changing for future meetings.

Suggestions and variations

The first few times, encourage people to speak up as participants may have trouble criticising the meeting.

Keep the group focus off of people but rather on the meeting’s processes; revisit the original objective if necessary.

If you have a good dynamic, you don’t have to limit yourself to a single idea per category and per participant, but instead allow the group to collaborate on the Board organically.
