Are retrospectives vehicles for continuous improvement? Do you get the value out of retrospectives? We will facilitate a retrospective about retrospectives. Many teams are doing retrospectives. How productive are these? The session aims to discuss anti-patterns and understand how to prevent and deal with these. It’s more than a couple of techniques or formats to facilitate or entertain a retrospective. Let’s get to the essence of what retrospectives are about.
An example anti-pattern is the “Whack-a-mole” pattern, in which a team discusses and tries to improve everything that’s happening in a sprint, resulting in little or no improvements in the end. The improvement issues keep on popping up, and the more you try to improve little things, the more minor problems appear, without any structural improvements made in the end.
You participate by sharing your experiences, deep-dive in causes and exploring possible experiments to improve. We will guide the session, give examples of anti-patterns and add our insights. The primary purpose is to create a space where you can learn from your peers.
iLean's Agile Kitchen
The last few years the world of work changed quite a bit, and many Agile community initiatives struggled to stay operational. With iLean’s Agile Kitchen we want to contribute in bringing the community back together in ways that suit our new reality.
In the Agile Kitchen we want you to be more involved and enlarge the learning potential of yourself and our community!
It’s simple: iLean’s Agile Kitchen is about Agile and people!
Every 6 weeks we gather around one or more Agile topics for intereactive learning sessions and knowledge sharing. We invite speakers from our community (maybe you?), or national and international thought leaders to facilitate these sessions about specific Agile topics. The topics we chose are your topics. We gather them on our Agile Kitchen Miro board and give you the possibility to introduce or support relevant topics.
Let’s get cooking!
