GROWS Reviewer Guidelines:
- Is the practice worded such that people can easily understand it? Have we avoided jargon and “agile” buzzwords?
- Does this experiment specify an explicit timebox—how long to run the experiment? It should usually be pretty short.
- Does this experiment lead you through the steps of:
- Identify Feedback →
- Perform an Experiment →
- Get Feedback →
- Make Small Adjustments (if needed)
- Is this practice appropriate to the skill stage?
- Practices in stages 1 and 2 need a checklist with concrete, unambiguous steps (that do not require judgment). The emphasis should be on safety and basic hygiene only.
- Practices in stage 3 should provide a recipe (“cook until done” is okay at this stage; critical thinking is required).
- Practices in stage 4 should help you generate your own mental models, so you can tune your practices for custom fit and local adaptations.
- Practices in stage 5 should help you teach your models and experience, and replicate your success.
- Does this practice encourage small steps?
- How does this practice degrade? What will people misunderstand and misapply, and how will that hurt them?
- Do you have any great stories (success or antipatterns) you could contribute?
