It starts with three chapters about the purpose of retrospectives, how to tailor one for your team, and how to lead one. A general framework for retrospectives is laid out gather data, generate insights, make decisions, and so on. The remaining chapters delve into these topics and each presents a variety of ways to perform the step.
I picked up some wonderful ideas in these chapters that I have been able to successfully apply. I'm not a big fan of the grueling multi—day retrospectives commonly held after a year or more of work on a big bang—style, waterfall project.
This book perfectly fills a need, describing how to run much shorter and more effective retrospectives on a more frequent basis. I highly recommend it.
