Sprint Retrospectives

  1. 1. Sprint Retrospectives Presented by Juan Banda
  2. 2. What is a Retrospective? A meeting where a team looks back on a past period of work so that they can learn from their experience and apply this learning to future sprints and projects 2
  3. 3. Agile Reflection “At • regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly.” Agile Manifesto principle •Agile projects aim to use Retrospectives during the life of the project rather than after catastrophic failure! 3
  4. 4. The process Sprint Retrospectives are part of the Sprint and can be conducted following a five step process: 1. Set the Stage 2. Gather Data 3. Generate Insights 4. Decide What to Do 5. Close the Retrospective 4
  5. 5. Set the Stage •Welcome people •Ask for a word or two describing a hope for the retrospective •Timebox the meeting •Set the goals •Working agreements: 1. Everybody talks but not at the same time 2. Somebody brings a camera 3. No blaming 4. One hour meeting 5
  6. 6. Gather Data Use your memory to remember important things that happened during the sprint, hard data first: • Metrics • Things that we can quantify • Candidates for measuring improvement • Events • Important things – good and bad – that happened during the Sprint Now use dot voting to express your feelings about those metrics and events 6
  7. 7. Generate Insights Time to ask “Why?” • and begin thinking about what to do differently •Investigate conditions, interactions, and patterns that contributed to success •Investigate breakdowns and deficiencies Look for risks and • unexpected events or outcomes 7
  8. 8. Decide What to Do •Many things can be improved, but trying to do everything at the same time dilutes team’s energy and focus •Pick the top items and plan what to do to improve them •Use dot voting again to decide which items have top priority 8
  9. 9. Close the Retrospective •Document the experience –taking pictures and posting them in a shared location– and plan for follow-up •The team needs to remember what it decided to improve for the next sprint •Commitment to improve things is the expected result of a successful retrospective Thank everybody for • attending 9
