The retrospective is the most powerful scrum practice teams use. In this video, learn how teams assess themselves and set improvement goals.
- For a scrum team, 100% of every sprint…is focused on the needs of the stakeholders…and the end users,…but the principles behind agile say that teams…need to reflect regularly on how to be more effective…and adjust their behaviors accordingly.…In scrum, this principle has taken shape…as the team retrospective, or retro for short.…This is the one time every sprint when the focus…is not on the product, it's on the team itself.…
Since the focus is on the team and team processes,…the scrum master facilitates this ceremony.…In order to have a successful retro,…you must have a safe environment.…As a result, this is a closed door session.…The team must know that only dedicated team members…will be present and that the team norms will be observed.…This sense of safety is essential to ensuring…the open dialogue that's needed…to really assess honestly the way the team…is working together.…
Usually the agenda for the retro is simple.…It consists of three questions.…What worked well?…What did not work well?…And what will we improve?…
