Agile Chalk Talk: Retrospecting Your Iterations

I’m doing some brief research about how to run our second retrospective. Here’s Jean Tabaka of Rally Software giving a short talk about running them:

Quick notes:

  • Retrospectives are about the team and not so much about the project.
  • Processes:
    • Plusses and deltas: What things went well? (+) What are things that didn’t go well? (delta)
    • Wind and anchors. Similar, viewing the iteration as a journey.
    • ORID: Objective, reflective, interpretive, decisional.
    • 3 H’s: Helped, hindered, hypothesis.
  • Consider making an implementation backlog
  • Appreciations and apologies: a time of reflection at the end.
