2016 Reflections

  • not everything is a sprint
  • there are different types of sprints
  • not all sprints need to be tested in the same way
  • retro required on all sprints
  • pre-Sprint kick-offs are invaluable
  • how might we coach more facilitators?
  • how might we improve the sprint environment?
