Let’s go on an adventure! Where to? The best retrospective experience your team has ever had, of course!
if your team says things like “we’re trying to be better but we keep running into the same issue” or “we just can’t seem to do this better,” it’s probably time to take a closer look 🧐at the causes of the problem you’re facing.
The sprint is over. The team is assembled. The working agreements have been read. It is time to retro!
Time. It’s our most valuable resource. And in a post-COVID world, people are paying attention to how they’re spending their time more than ever before. While hallway meetings and quick desk-side check-ins used to be commonplace, the rise in asynchronous communication has led many people to ask one big question.
Through this guide, we have embarked on several adventures. We have imagined our first and fiftieth retros. We have developed ways to build and maintain safety. We have asked our teams to review relevant data, establish value, and follow through on ideas. We have discussed ways we can all form an environment for progress.
