Henrique Centieiro: I Like / I Wish Retrospective Format

For Scrum Masters, success must include the team’s success. In this episode, we talk about the metrics and the type of feedback we must help teams collect, and how to use that to measure our Scrum Master success as well.

Featured Retrospective Format for the Week: I Like / I Wish and other games

Sometimes Scrum Masters must focus on helping teams feel at home, so that team members can discuss the issues that bother them. In this episode, we talk about how a CEO/CTO can derail a retrospective and what kind of games we can use to help teams focus on improving, even when managers are present in the retrospectives. The retrospective format we talk about is “I Like / I Wish”.

In this segment, we refer to Retromat, a service that helps you choose games/activities and plan your retrospective.
