When it comes to reviewing, and assessing our own success as Scrum Masters, Jill chooses to focus on a few metrics that she follows and discusses with the team. In this episode, we share and discuss what those metrics are, and how you can introduce the idea to the team.
Featured Retrospective Format for the Week: Introducing Retrospectives on Demand, an Agile approach to Agile retrospectives!
Jill has used many different formats in her role as Scrum Master. But lately, she’s shifted to “retrospectives on demand”. She encourages teams to raise their hand whenever something is on their mind, and they want to discuss it. As a heuristic for these retrospectives on demand, she started a board with the team, and whenever there are a certain number of cards on that board, the team gets together and discusses those topics.
Retrospectives, planning sessions, vision workshops, we are continuously helping teams learn about how to collaborate in practice! In this Actionable Agile Tools book, Jeff Campbell shares some of the tools he’s learned over a decade of coaching Agile Teams. The pragmatic coaching book you need, right now!
