Join Doug Rose for an in-depth discussion in this video Encourage group discussion, part of Agile at Work: Getting Better with Agile Retrospectives.
- Every so often, something will happen…which captures everyone's attention.…Maybe it will be a big legal decision, an election,…or a natural disaster.…Afterwards you'll see experts talking on television.…People will write articles.…People at work will tell their own version of the story.…When this happens, you might notice…that it seems like no one person can tell the whole story.…People only have their piece of the picture.…They'll have their perspective of what happened.…Only after months or even years…do you start to get the books and articles…that put together the whole story.…
in many ways, people only understand events…after they've become history.…In retrospectives, this is called the team's reflection.…It's the time when everybody combines…their little piece of the team story…to come up with the end-to-end history of the last sprint.…This reflection is an important part of team improvement.…It gets people out of the day-to-day firefighting…and into a long-term strategy on how to improve.…Agile does this reflection at the end of every sprint.…
