Popularised within the Agile movement, retrospective are a great tool for reflecting at the end of a project. What worked, what could be better — where are the opportunities?

We must continually find opportunities to learn and improve within our teams. Project retrospectives offer a fast and practical way to do this, allowing us to capture and codify what we’ve learned from experience, to discuss what can be improved and increase cohesion and potential for future growth. All teams benefit from having a retrospective at the end of a project, and there are simple structures to follow, with pitfalls to avoid.

We'll focus on:

• The structure of a perfect retrospective, and how to run one
• Watchouts and pitfalls
• The role of the facilitator
• Managing group dynamics
• Listening and questioning techniques
• Turning patterns into improvements
