Julie invites us to ask what success looks like for the teams we work with. Based on that, and a few other questions that Julie suggests, we can assess our impact, as well as invite the teams themselves into the reflection about success.
In this segment, we talk about Psychological Safety, a topic we have also covered in previous episodes.
Featured Retrospective Format for the Week: Mixing up formats to focus on the right question for the team
Julie likes to mix up several formats as a way to try and tap into what’s critical for the teams at that time. We also talk about bringing up the team working agreements regularly, to ensure that the team sticks to the agreements they have made.
In this segment, we refer to the Agile Retrospectives book and a tool Julie calls The Working Agreement Report Card, where the team scores themselves on how well they follow the agreements they had defined for themselves.
