"Wow! That was an awesome retro!"

A session at Agile and Beyond 2014

Saturday 22nd February, 2014

1:00pm to 1:45pm (LMT)

Do your retros suck? A little?

It's often said that if you can only introduce one agile practice, the retrospective is most important. We have whiteboards, stickies, and lots of activities, so what isn't working? How do we manage to create stale retros that don't produce any visible changes or improvements?

Learn how to go beyond exercises and activities to get your team talking, exploring together, and creating real improvement. We'll talk about building trust, encouraging learning & embracing mistakes. Learn how you can create a retrospective culture where every observation is valued, saying "uncomfortable" things is welcomed, and improvement is a given.
