Does your Scrum Master always use the same activity, What Went Well and What Could be Improved? OMG… Retrospective Hell created by a facilitator who doesn’t know how to create Retrospective Heaven… A retrospective should be fun, energetic, surprising, and people should love it!
In this Retrospective book, I share the activities I did during many agile retrospectives. Some of them I copied, some of them I tweaked and some of them I created myself. By sharing this, I hope you will learn about new activities and techniques for retrospectives and also will learn how to facilitate better retrospectives.
I am not going to explain in depth how you should organize a retrospective. I really recommend, and I mean really recommend, that you read the book Agile Retrospectives: Making Good Teams Great by Diana Larsen and Esther Derby. It is a must read if you want to learn more about retrospectives.
However, I will explain briefly how good retrospectives are organized.
“These are great ideas! Thank you for putting them here. I use most of the ideas here and the team loves it.”Jones Peterson
If you like my little Retrospective book, please let me know! One of the reasons I like to share knowledge is to help people. Therefore, it always makes my day when people share their learnings with me!
Do you want to learn how to organize great Retrospectives? How give team great experiences, and have them enjoy the retrospective? The Retrospective Workshop will be interesting for you!
