Point Synchro with a timebox
Some of our synch points have been too long recently, so we decided to timebox them. When the music plays, we meet around the story board and start a 5-minute timer. We look at the story board, focused on what it will take to move the stories along--and whoever is closest to the board asks people questions, using the stories as the focal point, instead of going around the circle to give everyone a chance to speak. At noon the meeting is slightly longer, because we make sure everyone has a chance to speak--but the rest of the time the objective is just to find out who should be talking to who.
