About the session…
Are you interested in improving how your team works and learns together? Would you also like to know more about the agile software movement?

A principle espoused in the agile community is that teams should regularly reflect on their effectiveness and then adjust their behavior accordingly. One way to accomplish this is via a facilitated gathering known as a retrospective.

In this session Nathaniel Cadwell, CPF and member of the agile software community, will share stories from a decade of working with teams and witnessing them improve their effectiveness via retrospectives. During this interactive session we will conduct a virtual retrospective together. You will walk away ready to design your next team reflection as a retrospective. Don’t miss out!
Session Objectives: After attending this introduction to retrospectives you will:
  • Understand the origins of the agile software movement.   
  • Know key features of a retrospective, and how its differs from other process improvement ceremonies such as a “post-mortem”.
  • Learn a popular framework for organizing retrospectives and ideas for activities in this format.    
  • Recognize top practices and pitfalls of retrospectives.    
  • Discover additional resources to learn more and facilitate retrospectives with your team.
