Franny likes to focus on what type of conversations the team members have with her during the Sprint. To evaluate her own success she asks: are the team members coming to me with uncomfortable situations and seeking my support and help? In this segment, we also talk about how we can mirror the right behaviors to the team, and that way influence their ability to share with us things that otherwise they might choose not to!
Featured Retrospective Format for the Week: Fixing a major retrospective Anti-pattern and helping Scrum teams speak up in the Retrospective!
One of the common Retrospective anti-patterns is the lack of focus on defining and taking action on improvement ideas. In this segment, we talk about how to help teams focus on improvement ideas, and share one tip on how to make sure the teams engage and share their own ideas. After all, we don’t want to be the only ones talking during the retrospective!
