When groups work together with weak, ineffectual or non-existent collaboration models, negativity can be a signifcant time waster and disruptor of creativity, learning, agreement and action. And arguing back and ignoring are often neither effective nor sustainable strategies. This is not so in the Agile Canvas process. We quickly translate any negative expression into a new question, or important consideration in the crafting of new stories and keeping all sprints highly realistic. Sometimes when people are negative and they feel heard, they actually become better able to learn, listen and contribute value to the group.
