Data Driven Retrospectives - Where people meet metrics!Chris Roberts
schedule 1 year agoSold Out!
This will fun filled simulation workshop is one I've run with many Agile user groups. It is so effective as its come from REAL retrospectives I've facilitated with REAL teams that have achieved REAL results.
The session will begin by setting the scene to give some context, giving the audience a brief background of what data driven retrospectives are and why do them.
Then we dive straight into the activities. The participants will be split into 3 teams. They will be given a scenario that they can all associate with from real life, a board workflow and some metrics captured.
What lies ahead will then be 3 action packed, time boxed rounds that encourage fun, energy and quick collaboration between teams. The teams will analyse their data, identify problems, suggest changes and convert them to REAL actionable tasks using their own board.
After each round, the team share the improvement changes they have made with the whole group, what it did for their results using their board as a reference and what they will consider next.
As the rounds continue the teams will visibly see the value on the mix of people, collaboration and data in their results and continuous improvement as a unit.
The session will end with a group reelection on the past 90 minutes which will empathise that this isn't a Kanban activity. It is an activity people and teams everywhere can benefit from. Scrum teams can do this, ScrumBan teams can do this, Waterfall teams using a Kanban board can do this.
The principles will be the same:
***** People + Collaboration + Real data = Continuous Improvement( Whatever your Flavour) ****
Oh I probably should. mention the small matter of HAPPY MOTIVATED PEOPLE too.
