What this is

Retrospectives are a technique that teams can use to inspect their progress in a project to date and identify opportunities for improvement in their processes, team dynamics, and decision-making as well as areas for continued excellence.


Why it's useful

The retrospective approach, especially when held in the middle of a project, helps the team to take a look backward to move forward. When done correctly, it provides a structure for a conversation that provides a safe environment for the project team to focus on what they could improve in future efforts. Retrospectives held during projects help the team correct course and learn from their experiences to be more effective in the remainder of the project.


How to use it

Retrospectives can vary in their duration and complexity based on their frequency and the length of time over which they are meant to cover. The instructions below assume the team is doing a retrospective following each iteration.
