Join us on WEDS Feb 27 2019 from Noon to 1 pm Eastern
for our Virtual Meeting talking about Retrospectives &
where we think about what makes a good Retrospective.
For the announcement of World Retrospective Day on Tuesday Feb 27th 2019
( and while you are at it, bookmark FRIDAY May 10 2019
for National Definition of Done Day
where we think about how a good Definition of Done prevents Scope Creep and lets developers know they are done.)
Notes from the Virtual Meeting in 2018 ( Feb 6 2018 )
Seeing "Risk" or "Trouble" during a retrospective can be very subjective.
Stock Phrase: Assuming we did all that, what do you expect to be different? What gets unblocked? How does your day change?
Engage, Listen, Confront = Clarity
Teams sometimes have Trouble getting to Specifics.
Other questions raised
Size of team during the retrospective
Good sound headsets for remote teams = more important than video
IceBreakers to start, like Pictionary of your Superpower
Agenda for a Retrospective is a Five Part Play . . .
Set the Stage.
Decide what to do
