ESVP> Initiate communication
The ESVP (Explorer, Shopper, Vacationer, Prisoner) is a very simple and quick ice-breaker to measure the engagement and posture of your participants before starting a meeting. It will allow you to anonymously collect their feelings and interest. Depending on the results, you can use this activity to discuss with your participants what needs to be done to improve the meeting.
Suggestions and variations
ESVP is a very useful activity for continuous improvement and is therefore very suitable for retrospective meetings.
You can also use it for training and collaborative workshops. In this case, it may be interesting to run this activity at the beginning and end of the session to see if your participants are changing their postures.
