Workshop: "The Power of Retrospectives"
Time: Friday 09:00 - 12:00
The Principles Behind the Agile Manifesto state that, "At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly." How should that be done?This tutorial will present techniques for project retrospectives that allow teams to discover what they're doing well so that successful practices can be repeated and identify what should be done differently so that teams can improve. Retrospectives are not "finger pointing" sessions, but rather a highly effective series of activities in which teams can reflect on the past in order to become more effective in the future. Participants will be introduced to the retrospective process, learn techniques for leading retrospectives, hear the experiences of the tutorial leaders who have led retrospectives in various kinds of projects, and participate in a retrospective simulation.
Keywords: agile, retrospectives, learning, project reviews
Target audience: anyone who is doing retrospectives or thinking about doing retrospectives, on any project, agile or not
