My Facilitation Kit

About two years ago, I toyed around with the idea of a “Scrum Master Emergency Kit“. Today I’d like to show you the kit tray I really use. I hope it’s useful for people new to facilitating retrospectives (or meetings in general):


My tray contains (ordered by frequency of use):

  • Whiteboard markers (no Flipchart markers, so there can’t be mix-ups)
  • Post-Its in various sizes
  • Pin-It-Cards (which I don’t pin but “magnet”)
  • Pens
  • Magnets
  • Tape
  • Blank paper (about the same size as “letter”)
  • Old plans for retrospectives and material for them

Anyone else up to showing how they haul around their stuff? And what stuff it is in particular?
