Rethinking Retrospectives: Beyond the Three Columns

Download to read offline

Talk delivered by Craig Smith and Michael Huynh at Agile Online Summit 2021 on 26 October 2021.

The concept of continuous improvement is to stop, pause, reflect, and make small adjustments for the team to improve. But are retrospectives really enough for your teams to improve sprint to sprint? What if your best retrospective still doesn’t yield the results desired and doesn't move your team out of first gear? What often happens is a narrow view from a team’s perspective on the last sprint or retrospectives don’t provide enough coverage on the broader topics beyond the last iteration.

Simply put, retrospectives are no longer enough!

Join Craig and Michael as they both share their experience and taking your teams to the next level!
