Reflection Workshops

Some things to think about for iteration/project phase reviews:
  • Sanity check iteration estimates and working conventions
  • Discuss what to keep, any ongoing problems and what we would like to try for the next period
  • Things to keep include sitting close together, daily stand-ups and automated regression tests
  • Problems include many interruptions, requirements changing too often and people making changes without notifying everyone
  • Suggestions for change include hours of interrupted work, use of coding standards, more unit or acceptance tests and occassional pair programming
  • Constrain the time allowed for the discussions to focus on concrete suggestions
