Limited Capacity seats available

Professionals who make time for learning perform better than those who don't. And deliberate practice plays a key role in building advanced skills. Agile retrospectives help teams reflect on past performance to identify areas for improvement. But improving at the team level also requires shared practice.
Discover new ways to enable team learning in this fun workshop featuring the co-author of Agile Retrospectives and The Five Rules of Accelerated Learning. By engaging managers and sponsors to set a long-term capability goal and then setting short short-term practice goals at the team's fluent edge you can give retrospectives new life, deliver better outcomes, and sustain continuous improvement over time.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand an Agile team's journey through the four capability zones of the Agile Fluency™ Model
  • Work with managers and sponsors to identify a long-term capability goal for your team
  • Identify and describe a team's fluent edge with the aid of provided diagnostic questions
  • Incorporate new ideas and techniques to design a goal-directed retrospective
