Leveraging the benefits of Retrospectives
In this workshop, you will learn how to scale agile retrospectives by doing them with multiple teams from a project, product or organization, practice facilitation skills with different retrospective exercises, and learn how you can introduce and improve retrospectives. You will also learn to do agile self-assessments and readiness checks and to design and facilitate retrospectives that help organizations to increase their agility.
Agile retrospectives are mostly known as a technique for a team to reflect and learn. This workshop builds on this and takes retrospectives to the organizational level. You will learn how to scale agile retrospectives, doing them with multiple teams. Explore ways how retrospectives can be used to share learnings and apply DevOps to align the way of working in the whole organization.
The best way to learn retrospectives is through experience, by doing them yourself and participating in retrospectives. In this workshop, you will practice facilitation skills with different retrospective exercises from the Retrospective Exercises Toolbox. You will learn how to introduce and improve retrospectives in your organization, do agile self-assessments and readiness checks and to design and facilitate retrospectives that help organizations to increase their agility with DevOps and become more agile and lean.
Audience & Requirements
This workshop is intended for:
• Agile coaches and change agents
• Scrum masters and retrospective facilitators
• Team, product or project managers
• (senior) managers
• Anybody involved in retrospectives
Attendees should have basic knowledge about agile retrospectives and some experience with facilitating retrospectives.
Learning by practicing and experiencing
Doing it yourself and reflecting, that is the way people learn new practices and skills in my workshops. They work in teams to try out things and experiment with practices to learn how agile looks and feels. I answer questions, share my experience, coach people, and provide lots of ideas. They learn from me, and also from each other
I use many exercises, games, and real-life cases in my workshops. Examples are the retrospectives toolbox, the Impediment Game, and the Agile Self-assessment Game.
My approach enables attendees to apply the things they learned in their daily work.
The workshops are time well spend; organizations get value for their money!
