Running Agile Retrospectives.

Thursday 8th November, 5:00-7:30pm

For many teams, a key appeal of Agile is its focus on continual improvement - whether this is optimising communications to support shared understanding, streamlining processes to increase project velocity, or creating self-empowered teams that reduce the need for micromanagement.

Retrospectives sit at the heart of this drive for improvement - highlighting strengths to be developed, as well as areas for growth. However, when faced with the day-to-day challenges of project delivery, finding time to conduct retrospectives in a way that delivers true value can be difficult. If this is a challenge you’re facing, you’ll be pleased to know that there are techniques that can help - and you can learn more about these at our upcoming event taking place on Thursday 8th November, 5-7:30pm, at the Box UK offices in Cardiff. 

Running Agile Retrospectives

In an interactive session with master practitioner and Agile Consultant Andrew Beaney, you’ll review the fundamentals of project retrospectives and build upon these - troubleshooting common challenges and facilitating effective team learning for the long-term.

Drawing from his experience in supporting organisations such as the British Horseracing Authority, Amway and the National Assembly for Wales, Andrew will help you understand how to build a successful team dynamic, keep team members engaged and draw out the feedback you need the most, all in order to maximise the impact of this key Agile activity.

Expect to come away with:

  • An understanding of the role retrospectives play in evolving your performance
  • Practical techniques for optimising their efficiency and effectiveness
  • First-hand experience of how to reinvigorate team participation in retros through the use of games

Whether you’re already an Agile practitioner or looking to become one, this event is a must-attend. Reserve your space today by filling in the form.
