Management Strategies for Agile Teams: Scrum Retrospectives (Online Class)

Tuesday, October 29th from 6:00 - 7:00 pm EST

Andrew Burrows, Scrum Master, IBM

Retrospectives are a requirement of the Scrum framework and are recommended for Agile teams as well — they can be used to inspect the process and identify obstacles and blockers a team may face. Good retrospectives enable the team to adapt their processes and continually improve. In this class, you’ll learn why retrospectives are important as well as the four core components of every good retrospective, then go through practical exercises demonstrating techniques for each of the core components.

TAKEAWAYS

  • Learn how to configure and facilitate an effective retrospective.
  • Gain an understanding of the boundaries and responsibilities of an effective facilitator with regard to retrospectives.
  • Be able to evaluate a team’s issues and identify the most effective retrospective.
  • Learn how to evaluate a company or team’s openness to retrospectives and identify ways of resolving that resistance.

Andrew Burrows is a Scrum Master currently working with IBM. Prior to this, he worked in video game development for over 12 years. During that time he shipped on numerous titles, including “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe”; “Transformers: The Movie”; and “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”. For the past five years, Andrew has been working at Large Animal games in New York City, developing social games in a fast-paced, close-knit, agile environment. When not writing bios, Andrew enjoys watching baseball and spending time with his incredible wife and son.
