This meeting allows everyone to speak and give feedback on anything. We suggest that you guide the conversation around metrics gathered during the Sprint. For example, incoming bug rate, testing automation, unit test coverage, quality etc. Although you may choose to use a method like the ‘de Bono 6 thinking hats’ which allows the team to speak about anything as long as it fits within the ‘hat state’.
There are many ways to run retrospectives which we chat about in our blogs but the main idea is to allow and encourage the team to discuss was ways to improve.
The main aspects to cover include:
- How the last Sprint went
- Identify what went well and what could be improved
- Create a plan to implement any actions to help improve the way of working
Suggested time box: Try to limit to 1 – 2 hours
