The beginning of a year seems like a good time for some predictions. Today I planned a very short and simple game for my team to check our future telling abilities.

I have printed out a short form with some questions related to our product and the team. The questions were are aimed at the end of the year (Dec 2015). I have prepared a mixture of technical and “team” questions, for example: “how many TPS we will handle at the end of year?” or “how many kids will we have in total by the end of 2015?” etc.
There were 13 questions in total, all to answer with simple yes/no or a number.

I have also provided a data sheet which described the situation right now so it would be easier to predict.

And now what? Well, I have gathered the answers and put them into an envelope. They wait for Dec 2015 when we open this “time capsule” and have a laugh. 🙂

P.S. The best “future teller” will be appointed the task of doing estimates. 😉

P.S. 2 – Short info about the results is here.
