Are your retros boring, non-productive, and a waste of time? Come learn about 3 case studies of extraordinary retrospectives.

Retrospectives are the heart of the feedback loop, existing within an agile framework that fosters self-improvement.

Retrospectives lose value due to 2 reasons: they get boring or they have no value in terms of actionable items.

The first case will describe a team’s experience, organised at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, Australia. A custom tour was developed that focused on “mateship”.

The second case will describe a team’s experience at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra, Australia: a prototype team training based on Visual Thinking Strategies, VTS, usually reserved for 11-12 year old school children.

The third case will describe a leadership team’s experience at the Art Gallery of NSW in Sydney, Australia. A team of executive-level leaders learned about mindfulness techniques and taking the time off to appreciate art as a team.

I will describe how you can partner with a variety of resources, including government programs, that will enable you to do the same thing.
