Retrospectives are a key pillar of successful agile adoption and transformation, and an indispensable tool for changing culture. They’re not only valuable in an agile context: they can be used whenever continuous improvement processes are needed, from “lessons-learned” workshops in traditional project management to enterprise-wide change management.
Agile Retrospectives Done Quickly introduces powerful, concise techniques for leading and participating in retrospectives that move faster and deliver more value. Leading agile coach/trainer Marc Loeffler offers practical, actionable instruction and detailed, results-focused examples, showing how to recognize and overcome the pitfalls often encountered in retrospectives. He shares valuable insights on distributed, solution-oriented, and systemic retrospectives, and offers expert advice on adapting retrospectives to your own unique needs.
Loeffler integrates breakthrough concepts (such as using experimentation and learning from system thinking) -- but he also presents small ideas that make a big difference, because they’re deeply grounded in real experience.
