Agile retrospectives are a key element of a successful continuous improvement process, and help you get to the root of your real problems, so you can solve them quickly and effectively. In this book, author and agile coach/trainer Marc Loeffler combines practical guidance, proven practices, and innovative approaches for maximizing the value of retrospectives for your team—and your entire organization.

Loeffler’s detailed, results-focused examples help you recognize and overcome common pitfalls, adapt retrospectives to your needs, and achieve tangible results. He integrates concepts such as using experimentation and learning from system thinking, alongside small ideas that make a big difference because they’re grounded in real experience.
