I have been running retrospectives for 5 years now in software development teams, still this book provided me with a lot of insights. I appreciated the clear and concise way the authors used to express the concepts. Really recommended!
5つ星のうち5.0Great read to improve your improvement process
Great read for anyone looking to improve their retrospectives and serves as a good reference book for those that already do well. Book is well organised and full of handy tips around making a business case, small improvements, feedback loops, challenging de-facto and on-demand retros.
Simple to understand with real life stories yet not the usual management book which dictates to you, rather nicer approach describing what they had experienced referencing sources for further research. Very interesting even for non Agile people like me Nigel

5つ星のうち5.0Great Resource For Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches
This book provides excellent examples of how to improve a team's functionality, both within the team and the organization, though various types of retrospectives. Using the standard sprint length of two weeks, there's more than enough material in here to power productive retrospectives.
FYI, table of contents is not visible using the "Go To" menu, but is available using the table of contents icon. Minor glitch in an otherwise excellent Kindle adaptation.
This book contains a lot of great, thought provoking, battle-hardened idea and practices around how to improve and keep your retrospective relevant.
The author share from their vast and solid experience a mix of thoughts that can be used directly, practically but also some that you will have in the back in your head that might change the way you approach the whole area of process improvement.
I would think that this book will make almost every team happy as a companion, close to the team area. Pick up and get some inspiration around how to make your retrospective relevant.

There are lots of great ideas in the book to change up your retrospectives. One can take away some ideas for general conflict resolution in your life and not necessarily apply it to software development.
