Project retrospectives help teams examine what went right and what went wrong on a project. But traditionally, retrospectives (also known as “post-mortems”) are only held at the end of the project—too late to help. You need agile retrospectives that are iterative and incremental. You need to accurately find and fix problems to help the team today.
Perhaps you’ve only heard these mentioned in a development context. But in recent years, agile retrospectives have worked their way out of development and into all facets of the business, from marketing right up to management. Anyone can benefit from the payoff.
By the end of this course, you should be able to start off your first retrospectives.
