Petr Holodňák on the importance of a shared goal to spark improvements

Our efforts to improve, and help the team improve are often focused on actions. Undoubtedly, we must focus on constant action that leads to improvement. But how do we get the teams to take initiative to improve, and collaborate with other stakeholders? In this episode, we review the importance of having a clear goal as the spark for the improvement cycle to start.

Featured Retrospective format of the week: Immediate Retro

Often we organize retrospectives at the end of the Sprint. But is that the best time to solve problems? It may be! But not always. So what to do when we need to act now? The Immediate Retro, of course! Petr explains his view of why the Immediate Retro is important, and how to go about it.
