It seems to be a common understanding that retrospectives are the major practice that enables agility. However, conducting virtual retrospectives is often not straight forward. One possibility is to conduct a retrospective at each site and then to swap the different findings afterwards. Another one is to facilitate a joint virtual retrospective using different virtual communication channels. In this workshop we will explore practices and facilitation techniques that have helped in different global projects. Moreover we’ll indicate supporting tools and how to prepare such a workshop.
Practicing what we preach. We shall conduct a daily retrospective of the conference, before we end a day. Assemble the willing participants to share their feedback: what is working well, what needs improvement, etc.
This will provide valuable feedback to conference organizers as well as speakers to make the rest of the conference even more valuable for participants.
