Join Doug Rose for an in-depth discussion in this video Choose an ideal meeting space, part of Agile at Work: Getting Better with Agile Retrospectives.
- Retrospectives depend on many set up details.…This is true more than any other Agile event.…There's a lot of details that really matter.…It matters who attends.…It's also important who's not attending.…It's important who facilitates your retrospective.…It's also extremely important where you…have your retrospective.…The facilitators should work hard to make sure…that everyone feels safe and engaged.…Sometimes retrospectives bring out a lot of emotion.…Some team members have strong ideas about…what went well, and what could be improved.…
It's important to have a good space…set up and geared towards making people…feel comfortable.…That way, they'll be more open to new ideas.…The room is a big part of that comfort.…A good space can go a long way to making sure…that everyone's in the right mindset.…Think about the last time you went on an airplane flight.…You walked through the tight corridor,…hoping that there's some space left in the overhead bin.…None of the air vents are open,…so the plane feels crowded and stuffy.…
