Event Details

ABSTRACT: Just like a married couple that has been together for a long time, agile teams can grow a little careless in doing retrospectives. Some of the rationale for the practice might have slipped away or the insights might seem less compelling or, in many cases, a lot of focus on little problems causes teams to lose sight of the big picture. Learning might have stalled. In this presentation, Linda Rising will share her experience and thoughts on "middle-aged" teams and their retrospectives. She will offer some practical, easy-to-implement tips and a new way of looking at iteration meetings for those who are coaching other teams or for those who want to improve their own practices. Linda is interested in how human brains solve problems so she will have pointers to more resources for those who want to learn more on their own.

 

SPEAKER: Linda Rising is an independent consultant based in Nashville, Tennessee. Linda Rising has a Ph.D. from Arizona State University in the field of object-based design metrics and a background that includes university teaching and industry work in telecommunications, avionics, and tactical weapons systems. An internationally known presenter on topics related to patterns, retrospectives, the change process, and how your brain works, Linda is the author of a number of publications and four books: Design Patterns in Communications; The Pattern Almanac 2000, A Patterns Handbook; and co-author with Mary Lynn Manns of Fearless Change: Patterns for Introducing New Ideas.
