Agile retrospectives are essential for teams to learn and improve themselves. Retrium is organizing the 1st annual Agile Retrospectives survey which I highly recommend.
On their website Retrium explains why they are running this survey:
If agile is all about continuous improvement, then the retrospective is the driver of that continuous improvement process.
Yet no one has ever asked: “how good are we at retrospecting, anyway?”
We aim to gain a deeper understanding of how retrospectives are used in the real world.
The survey investigates retrospective practices, tools, and techniques and explores challenges that teams are facing when doing retrospectives.
I’m a partner with Retrium as I believe their tools can make it easier to do (remote) retrospectives.
