Workshop Increasing Organizational Agility with Retrospectives in Melbourne, Australia
February 18, 2016 - February 19, 2016AUD880
In this workshop you will learn how to scale agile retrospectives, 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.
Adopting agile often doesn’t go as smoothly as expected in an organization. Becoming agile is a learning process which requires that you reflect regularly and adopt your way of working. Retrospective facilitators need to have a toolbox of retrospective exercises and the skills to design and lead valuable agile retrospectives. The workshop Increasing Organizational Agility with Retrospectives provides solutions for reflection and improvement across projects and organizations, and explores how retrospectives can be used for successful agile adoption at all levels in the organization to increase agility.
Agile retrospectives are mostly known as a technique for a team to reflect and learn at the end of each iteration (see the workshop Valuable Agile Retrospectives for Teams). This workshop build on this and takes retrospectives to the organizational level. You will learn how to scale agile retrospectives, doing them with multiple teams from a project, product or organization. Explore ways how retrospectives can be used to share learnings and 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 you can introduce and improving retrospectives in your organization. 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 and become more agile and lean.
