Managers are usually shown the door if they try to pop into a team’s retro.
The retrospective is a sacred, and safe place for the team to get real with each other, and a manager can shift the energy of the room just by being present.
By leveraging ScatterSpoke for the team’s retrospectives managers can stay in sync with what’s working and not working for all of their teams without getting in the way.
Inside ScatterSpoke managers can review summaries that give an anonymous overview of each team’s meetings including key themes, highest voted items, and action items.
At ScatterSpoke, we don't let managers completely off the hook for attending a retrospective.
Leadership can be invited to a program or portfolio where they can have retrospectives that incorporate feedback voluntarily provided from any child team's retrospective.
