Understand what effective retrospectives are and how to make adjustments to agile team practices.
- One of the best things about agile is its focus…on continuous improvement.…It's based on the concept of kaizen,…which is a Japanese word for change for the better.…This was developed in the '50s…as part of the manufacturing environment in Japan.…Kaizen demands that the people doing the work…frequently examine how they work…and make incremental improvements.…The expectation is that you can improve the quality…of your work by making small adjustments to your processes…over time.…
