Retrospectives are a powerful tool for facilitating continuous improvement. This workshop shows how to use retrospectives to put your team on a path of continuous improvement.
If you have never experienced a well-run retrospective, then it is hard to imagine what it is like by simply reading a book. Nevertheless, the article “An anatomy of a retrospective” tries to tie many of the discussions into a single experience. It is based on one real-life retrospective, but spiced up with a few pieces from other retrospectives. I’m certain the participants would recognize themselves, but I hope I have changed enough of the trivia to protect their privacy.
In his article “Effective Retrospectives & Reviews” Marco Mulder illustrates how Scrum teams can continuously improve by using a combination of their definition of done, working agreements and the product backlog.
