About 7 years ago we created the first version of the Squad Health Check at Spotify. Since we published it I’ve continued to use the exercise and over time I have extended my own deck with topics that have been meaningful in the organizations I’ve been in. With this post I want to make my extensions available to anyone who might find them useful.
You can download my updated version here.
Since this version has a few more cards it does take longer to run the session. If you use all of them I’ve found that 90 minutes is needed. If you want to keep it to the 60 minutes that was needed for the original set I’d recommend removing the cards that seem less valuable in your setting.
