January 5th: The Art of the Retrospective

The Art of the Retrospective

Presented by Dawn Hemminger

If you’ve been on an agile team, then you’ve experienced your share of retrospectives, maybe even facilitated a few yourself. A retrospective, at its core, is time set aside to step back from the day to day to reflect on how you’re doing and to find ways to improve. With that spirit in mind, you will be immersed in an engaging real-life retrospective as you learn proven facilitation techniques that will take your next retrospective from Ho Hum to Oh Wow!
