Powerful Project Retrospectives
The period after completing a major project is a fertile time for teams to reflect on their performance and opportunities for change and growth, especially in the aftermath of troubled projects. I will discuss a format for end-of-project retros that has proven to be a useful tool for helping team members become better contributors, collaborators and communicators. I will explain how and why this is different to per-sprint retros and when you should use this with your teams.
