“As a developer..” I forget about Retrospectives
Unfortunately, another default Scrum ceremony that is often ignored is the retrospective. Without retrospectives the team can’t learn and improve. Rally lists the retrospective issue in its “Top 10 Mistakes Made by New Agile Teams”. In my humble view the failure of a team to engage in a retrospective says a lot about the team failing to be/understand agile – the team could often be said to be simply going though some motions of pretending to be agile, without actually understanding and embracing agile.
Suggestion: Buy one of the many good agile book and learn. Read the blogs from the many respected agile coaches. Embrace the new world and stop blocking others.
