What is the goal of the Retrospective?

This week almost all of my teams ended their sprint. As we always do, at the end of each sprint we look back and reflect on what went well and what we can improve.

To do so, a Scrum Master/Agile Coach should have a lot of different retrospective styles in their toolbox. The idea behind it is, if you don’t do the same thing over and over again, it doesn’t become routine and you can get non-standard ideas.

Different styles will be conducted in different ways. Different questions will provide different answers, but that doesn’t matter.

It doesn’t matter because the goal, the purpose of every retrospective is one and one only. Find something we can improve on for the next sprint. If you think like that, the journey can be whatever you want it to be, as long as you reach that goal.

  1. I would say the function of Retrospective is very important to hold as it can be simulated with Kidneys a Live organ in the Body as the body needs to clean the impurities to purity , From holding this Ceremony The Prospective Sprint needs an incremental / a batter value always by either the relationship within the team or between the trio PO-SM-DEV or in terms of Alignment of thoughts to what we aim for and what we have accomplished. for eg
    1) During the Sprint’0′ , at the instance of Epic being Split to US with AC may or may not have been properly linked at JIRA this can be taken care next
    2) The Filters which have not been defined can be defined later for the convenience of SM to deal with during the DS
    3) Further more the Filters Besides to defining at individual name(s) can be extended to the defnitions/Titling with any Impediment or Completed US

    Like this every left our or forgotten configuaration can be handled for better to showcase a Professional un commented iteration towards the best implemented Sprint timeline(s) to enable a smmoth go for PI Planning as well in case the SAFe is being addressed for the Portfolio
