I have been using the perfection game since 2003/2004. I find it one of the best ways to give feedback to people. (It’s also one of the most popular searched item on my blog.)
The biggest feedback I got, is that he perfection game makes people think of perfectionism. Which is not the intention. I know that perfectionism blocks people. I don’t want this link block people from trying this feedback technique.
So I ‘m starting an experiment.
For the next months, I will talk about:the improvement game.
this is the syntax:
I want play an improvement game on what you did.
What I like:
– I liked x
– I liked y
– I find z amazing
To make it even better/ What would improve it:
– I would like to see W
– I think removing A would be a good addition
These changes are worth 3out of 10 for me.
Update: I stopped using the scoring, I noticed that it keeps confusing people. Will experiment with ways how people can talk about the value the improvements give them. For now, I don’t worry to much, the most important part is telling people idea’s on how to improve. What they are wurth to me, is not really that important.
