Abstract

Retrospectives are the core of agility. And yet they are often the ceremony that is most frequently skipped. Many teams like the idea of the retrospective but find them boring, or worse ineffective. The trouble is that the retrospective is the most essential aspect of high performing teams. Without them, how can you systematically and continually improve?

Join Retrium CEO and Co-Founder David Horowitz as he reveals seven secrets that lead to effective retrospectives. You’ll learn:

  • The best way to ensure your retrospectives lead to real change
  • The “pledge” everyone on your team must take before participating
  • How to know who to include in each retrospective
  • The single most important thing you can do to keep your team engaged during the retro
  • And much, much more!
