REVIEW ONE WEEK, UNLESS YOU’RE OUT OF TIME. IN THAT CASE, DO TWO!
Retrospectives help a team achieve success. Each person on a team brings a different life experience, a different perspective. Effective retrospectives leave everyone comfortable, aligned, and ready to be part of the best experience possible.
Knowing this, authors Paulo Caroli and Tainã Caetano Coimbra worked to make the Retrospectives even more effective. So they realized something very important: a light and fun approach is the main way to facilitate a good Retrospective!
This complete and illustrated book will provide you with the knowledge you need to choose which activity will be most suitable for your team, while having a wide variety of activities and diverse ideas always at your disposal.
