Description

APO

Join APO on Wednesday, February 27th from 6:00-8:30pm for an interactive evening using retrospective activities to reflect and learn how we can optimize retrospectives to improve product outcomes.


Retrospectives can be considered one of the most efficient and effective ways to improve product development. Retrospectives are well-known to the development community as a means of improving team process, delivery, and team relationships. Product Managers and Product Owners often overlook their usefulness not only for building healthy product development teams, but also improving product outcomes.


Our Agile Product Open community joins others around the globe on Wednesday, February 27th, World Retrospective Day. At APO Boston, we’ll explore how product people use (or don’t) use retrospectives in product development to grow, sustain and improve product outcomes.


In this evening event, we retrospect retrospectives, from the product perspective.


We’ll use a multi-part series of activities. We begin by setting the stage for our evening gathering data about your use of retrospectives, conduct a fast-paced, self-directed learning activity about retrospectives (also gathering more data), then use a series of retrospective activities to reflect on the prior activities. You leave with a deeper understanding of retrospectives, an experience of participating in a retrospective, and with an expanded set of possibilities for how to optimize retrospectives to improve product outcomes.


All are welcome. You might be experienced in integrating retrospectives into your product management or product ownership work, and in being an active participant in product development team retros. Alternatively, you may be new to retrospectives, or to the idea of using them as a product management tool.


Join us for another lively evening where we, the community, engage deeply, open ourselves to surprises, and reflect and learn from each other.


** Light food and soft drinks / wine / beer will be provided**
