Importance of Retrospective within Agile Processes?
Retrospectives are an important part of the Agile process. They help teams reflect on wins while homing in on what can be improved for next time. But without a clear meeting agenda and a way to follow up on action items, these meetings can get off track and not actually lead to process improvements. By tracking discussion topics, feedback, and actionable to-do’s within the tool, Agile teams can continuously improve their work—without reinventing the wheel.
What is the purpose of a sprint retrospective?
A sprint retrospective is a chance for the Agile team to share what went well during the sprint and planning process, and what you can improve for next time. Because Agile teams typically run two-to-four weeks sprints, a retrospective is a chance to see what was accomplished, and what work—if any—is still left.
