Bazaar

The challenge

How can we scale the collecting of feedback, the exchange with stakeholders and customers from one team to many teams without losing the developer’s motivation and without investing a great amount of time?

As soon as we are working in an environment where several teams are working on something together, a simple review per team is not sufficient anymore. We require a new format which enables us to bring the work of all teams involved together.  We try to actively gather feedback, exchange opinions with stakeholders, customers, colleagues and different teams and jointly rethink the further product development. In order to
satisfy our customers and continuously deliver value, we frequently need to get their feedback.

Bazaar - What is it? 

A Bazaar is an efficient way to rapidly gather feedback from a large group of stakeholders, customers, colleagues and different teams. The bazaar ideally takes place in a large room with multiple areas, each staffed by representatives, where applications / projects / innovations / technologies / features are shown and discussed.
The possibilities are endless.
You might wonder how such a bazaar could take place?  It’s actually quite simple! Keep the following four main elements of a Bazaar in mind:

Content

Communication

The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.
