If you’re not healthy, you’re not going to perform well. Simple enough. The same thing applies to your Agile team. Not healthy? Good luck getting anything done (or at least done well).
But, like many of us skip our routine physical exams because we’re “too busy,” we also skip our Agile team checkups, leaving “well enough” alone. It’s time to evaluate the health of your Agile team, starting with the most important component, the heart of the team, the retrospective.
To get your team’s health back on track, you need a powerful, deep-dive strategic retrospective that focuses on the top areas that affect team performance and health. This presentation from Denver Startup Week discusses the 5 dimensions of team health: Clarity, Performance, Leadership, Culture, and Foundation, including how to monitor and track them, and how to make sure they stay at a high-performance level over time.
"It's frustrating that there are so many failed software projects when I know from personal experience that it's possible to do so much better - and we can help."
