“Data-driven retrospectives for practical culture shift”
Retrospectives are arguably the most useful tool in an Agile team’s toolbox, regardless of where they are on their journey. One problem less mature teams often face is that they don’t know what to improve, how, and how to evaluate the result. Peter will present a retrospective format that ties together the 12 principles of the Agile manifesto, Agile and Lean good practices as well as commonly used metrics, to help a team craft an experiment in enhancing agility. It is a simple, practical, data-informed approach to culture change that tailors itself to a team’s specific needs at that given time, and is entirely in their control to define, run and evaluate. By regularly running these safe-to-fail experiments to collectively identify emerging practices for their context, teams will gradually experience a shift towards a more Agile mindset. This approach can also scale to the organizational level for a wider cultural impact in the long run.
The audience will learn a workshop format for data-informed, goal-driven, context-specific experiments, useful as an Agile retrospective format to drive a mindset and culture shirf, as well as other change management applications in complex adaptive systems.
