Make Your Agile Retrospectives More Valuable

Session type: Full-day tutorial

Speaker: Ben Linders

Target audience: Developers, tech leads, Scrum masters, agile coaches, product owners, (senior) managers

The agile manifesto proposes that a “team reflects on how to become more effective”. Agile retrospectives can be used to inspect and adapt the way of working. They help teams to address impediments and optimize their flow, by deploying agile and lean  practices in an effective way.

The retrospective facilitator (often the scrum master) should have a toolbox of retrospective exercises, and be able to pick the most effective ones. Retrospectives are a great way for teams to improve their way of working, to become more agile and lean. Getting actions out of a retrospective that are doable, and getting them done helps teams to learn and improve continuously.

What can attendees take away from my session:
  • Learn about the why and how of Agile Retrospectives
  • Experience difference retrospective exercises
  • Tips and tricks to address blockers and improve flow with retrospectives
  • See the benefits of using effective exercises in retrospectives

In this workshop I will explain the “what” and “why” of retrospectives and the business value and benefits that they can bring. Attendance will practice one or more retrospective exercises and learn how to facilitate retrospectives. I will also give advice for introducing and improving retrospectives. Workshop is based on the successful book Getting Value out of Agile Retrospectives.
