About the training
Learn new exercises for your agile retrospectives, find out how to create a safe environment, and improve your facilitation skills in the workshop Valuable Agile Retrospectives for Teams!
Agile Retrospectives help teams to continuously improve by reflecting at the end of each iteration to learn what is going well and what can be improved, and to do improvement actions in the next iteration. Retrospective facilitators need to have a toolbox of retrospective exercises and the skills to design and lead valuable agile retrospectives. In the workshop Valuable Agile Retrospectives for Teams, you will practice exercises for facilitating retrospectives in teams.
A great way to learn retrospectives is through experience by doing them yourself and participating in retrospectives. In this workshop, you will practice different exercises from the Retrospective Exercises Toolbox to facilitate retrospectives. You will learn the “what” and “why” of retrospectives, the business value, and benefits that they can bring to your team.
Apply and Improve
In this workshop, you will learn how to adapt and apply retrospectives in your own organization and how to provide retrospective facilitators with a toolbox with retrospective exercises enabling them to do valuable agile retrospectives with teams which contribute to the goals and results of your organization!
Do you want to improve retrospectives at a project or release level, remote retrospectives, or use retrospectives to drive continuous improvement? Then I recommend my workshop Increasing Agility with Retrospectives.
