Agile Retrospectives: it’s OK when something fails

For the 9th article in the Bits&Chips series I collaborated with Ben Linders.

Who’s Ben: He is one of the Agile Retrospectives Authorities and besides the book “getting Value out of Agile Retrospectives’. he gives many workshops on the topic. I am glad to have his ideas incorporated in the article.

Outline of the article: We describe that learning is a part of SCRUM and the way to become great. It’s OK if something fails, as long as you learn from it. Retrospectives are within SCRUM one of the moments to gather the learnings and make plans for improvements. The article gives an overview of some techniques that you can use and some questions you can ask in order to have valuable retrospective meetings.

Where do I get the article: You can read the article in the latest edition of Bits&Chips magazine or read it here (sorry Dutch only): Agile in de echte wereld deel 9: Agile Retrospectives
