Exercises to spice up your agile retrospective at Agile Cambridge 2017
September 26, 2017 - September 29, 2017
Valuable agile retrospectives provide the solution for a successful agile adoption at all levels in an organisation. They help teams to reflect and learn how to apply agile practices effectively, and support managers with ideas to set conditions for their teams to grow and deliver more value.
In this mini-workshop you will experience how using different exercises can help you to spice up your agile retrospectives and get more value out of them. I will also explain the why and how of retrospectives, the business value and benefits that they can bring you, and provide tips for improving retrospectives in your teams.
In teams, you will practice exercises from the Retrospective Exercises Toolbox to experience how to effectively facilitate retrospectives.
- understanding the why and how of agile retrospectives
- practising different retrospective exercises
- seeing how to create a safe environment to run a retrospective
- practicing skills for facilitating retrospectives
Intended audience: scrum masters, agile coaches, tech leads, developers, testers, product owners, (senior) managers.
Spicing up your retrospectives
The book Getting Value out of Agile Retrospectives from Luis Gonçalves and Ben Linders provides many different retrospective exercises that you can use to design effective retrospectives for continuous sustainable improvement.
