Agile2022 wrapped last Friday. Thank you Agile Alliance and Nashville! It had been a long time between in-person conferences for our amazing community of agilists, and we were thrilled to be part of it, as attendees, sponsors, and a speaker – our very own Colleen Johnson. The entire ScatterSpoke crew loved seeing so many new and familiar faces (and cool masks!) in-person after so long!
Fast feedback loops and effective retrospectives can improve software delivery and make life easier for developers, project managers, and organizational leaders. On the other hand, bad feedback loops and retros can lead to frustration and lack of motivation.
Here’s a secret: Developers hate your retros. Not all developers and hopefully not all of your retros, but at some point, a developer has sat there and thought “this retro sucks”. It’s a serious problem, and at the heart of it lies one key concept: continuous improvement.
