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!
