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. Valuable Agile Retrospectives provide the solution for a successful agile adoption at all levels in the organization.
Retrospectives help you to apply agile practices effectively. With Retrospectives teams and their stakeholders can continuously improve themselves to deliver more value. Retrospective facilitators need to have a toolbox of retrospective exercises and the skills to design and lead valuable agile retrospectives.
Agile retrospectives help teams to continuously improve by reflecting at the end of each iteration to learn what is going well and what can be improved, and to do improvement actions in the next iteration. This workshop is intended for:
- Retrospective facilitators
- Agile coaches
- Scrum masters
- Team, product or project managers
- Anybody involved in retrospectives
In this workshop you will learn to design and facilitate retrospectives that help organizations to become more agile and lean.
The best way to learn retrospectives is through experience by doing them yourself and participate in retrospectives. In this interactive workshop you will be doing several agile iterations where each of them use a different kind of retrospective. You can choose from several retrospective exercises, like:
- Effective questioning
- Dealing with feelings in teams
- Improving using strengths with Solution Focused
- Root cause analysis of problems
- Improving collaboration in projects
- Asking why?
In this workshop you will learn different exercises that you can use to facilitate retrospectives, supported with the “what” and “why” of retrospectives, the business value and benefits that they can bring you, and advice for introducing and improving retrospectives.
Apply and Improve
Two important conditions to make retrospectives valuable are to have clear goals (why do you do retrospectives) and experienced facilitators (Scrum Masters and / or Agile Coaches).
