Today we will finish our overview to the Scrum Events with the Sprint Retrospective. This 3 hours proportional time-boxed event is focused on the Scrum Team’s improvement. The purpose is to inspect the Scrum Team itself and create an improvements plan for the next Sprint. How can we do it?
- First, we have to inspect people, relationships, processes and the tools used in the last Sprint.
- Second, identify and order the major items that went well and potential improvements.
- And last, create a plan to implement the improvements for the Scrum Team’s work.
The role of the Scrum Master in this event is to encourage the Scrum Team to improve, within the Scrum Framework, ensuring the Team understands better its processes and practices, while they enjoy applying them. The team can increase the project quality by improving the definition of “Done”.
The next day we will see the Scrum Artifacts and concretely the Product Backlog, until then, help me sharing! I wish you all a happy new year, see you all in 2013!
