Don McGreal and the importance of actionable retrospectives

When retrospectives don’t work we, sometimes, get discouraged. This also happened to Don. A very experienced Scrum Master that started just like us: from the beginning. Retrospectives, a very important part of the Scrum process, are sometimes abandoned because they are difficult to conduct and get value from. So Don changed his approach to retrospectives. Listen in as Don explains what he learned and why actions are so important for successful retrospectives.
