Featured Retrospective Format for the Week: The Google Translate Agile Retrospective

When helping a team that did not have English as the mother tongue, Adrienne was forced to innovate and come up with a method that would allow the team to express themselves naturally, while at the same time helping her, as the Scrum Master, facilitate that conversation.
