Agile / Scrum Retrospective Agenda

The Agile Retrospective training by Agile Academy delves deeply into the following subjects:

Structuring Retrospectives

Effectively structuring retrospectives is essential for facilitating meaningful discussions and extracting valuable insights from the team. Learn how to plan and execute retrospectives in a way that engages participants, encourages open dialogue, and promotes constructive feedback. Discover different retrospective formats, such as timeline, starfish, or 4Ls (Liked, Learned, Lacked, Longed for), and gain insights on when and how to utilize them to maximize the effectiveness of your retrospectives.

Advanced Facilitation Techniques

Become a skilled retrospective facilitator by expanding your repertoire of facilitation techniques. Uncover a toolkit of methods to ensure all team members have a voice, conflicts are effectively resolved, and consensus is reached. Develop the ability to navigate challenging situations, facilitate productive discussions, and create an environment that fosters trust, collaboration, and innovation.

Actionable Improvements

The true value of retrospectives lies in the actionable improvements that result from them. Learn how to prioritize and track the tasks and actions identified during retrospectives to ensure they are implemented and progress is made. Discover techniques for creating SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound) goals and establishing mechanisms for accountability. By translating retrospective insights into concrete actions, teams can continuously evolve and achieve their goals.

Retrospectives for Organizational Development

As Agile practices are adopted on a larger scale, it becomes crucial to manage retrospectives in a multi-team or program environment. Gain insights on how to scale retrospectives effectively, ensuring alignment, coordination, and communication across multiple teams. Explore techniques for sharing learnings, identifying common challenges, and promoting collaboration and knowledge exchange in larger Agile programs.

Bring Your Own Ideas & Questions

We encourage participants to bring their questions to the training. Any question and real-world example from your side will make everything you and others learn more tangible. It will also result in more energy throughout the training which is connected to better learning.

The Agile Retrospective Training is a specialized course designed to equip participants with the tools, techniques, and understanding necessary to effectively lead retrospective sessions in Agile and Scrum environments.

So, it can be viewed as both a Scrum Retrospective Training and a Facilitation Training. However, it's essential to note that the overarching goal is to improve Agile teams' productivity and performance through effective retrospectives.

By the end of the workshop, you'll be equipped with a comprehensive understanding of retrospective principles, techniques, and best practices, all of which will empower you to facilitate more effective and productive sessions. The skills you acquire should enable you to identify improvement areas, encourage constructive feedback, and promote continuous growth within your team, thereby leading to better Scrum Retrospective meetings.
