You'll see how to architect retrospectives in general, how to design them specifically for your team and organization, how to run them effectively, how to make the needed changes and how to scale these techniques up. You'll learn how to deal with problems, and implement solutions effectively throughout the project--not just at the end.This book will help you:* Design and run effective retrospectives* Learn how to find and fix problems* Find and reinforce team strengths* Address people issues as well as technological* Use tools and recipes proven in the real worldWith regular tune-ups, your team will hum like a precise, world-class orchestra.
