Retrospectives aim to guide teams in identifying areas for improvement at the conclusion of each sprint through engaging workshops. They are a pillar of ‘continuous improvement’ in Scrum, making this type of workshop highly significant in the realm of agility.
Retrospectives can be conducted with Scrum teams or even within business units.
These retrospectives are of paramount importance and require some guidelines to follow. Here are my personal recommendations for the facilitator to lead them effectively:
- Speak loudly, but not excessively.
- Be dynamic in front of the participants.
- Wear a big smile and share it.
- Avoid sitting throughout the entire workshop.
- Don’t repeat the same workshop in every iteration.
These recommendations are not to be taken lightly because the repetition of a subpar retrospective can have negative consequences for the team, possibly leading them to believe that retrospectives are futile and should be abandoned. It’s worth noting that the art of facilitation is not a skill possessed by everyone.
