Viyoma Sachdeva: The “How” is more important than the “How Much”

When defining success we often look for metrics that help us assess the progress of the team. That’s ok, but are you looking at the “how”? How is the team achieving that success is also important? So Viyoma asks 4 different questions that help us ensure that not only are we getting the “measurable” success, but we are also helping the team find their “sustainable pace”.

Retrospective format: 3 questions with written answers

Viyoma’s go-to retrospective format is simple enough. But she uses a practice that helps the team members reflect ahead of the retrospective: write the answers down ahead of the retrospective session. This helps the team reflect with more impact, and come up with solutions that are developed over time, not just the last-minute ideas that many retrospectives end up producing.
