Dialogue Sheets, a new tool for retrospectives

Retrospectives are a key tool in the Agile toolkit. But, they aren't easy. Some teams do them regularly - but they can become boring and repetitive.

Other teams don't do them - they lack the time, the energy or they don't have a suitable facilitator.

To overcome these problems, and enhance teamwork, Allan Kelly has created a series of Retrospective Dialogue Sheets. These are a new tool in the Agile toolkit to inject some fun and variety into retrospectives. They also abolish the role of retrospective facilitator!

This is a hands on session, everyone will get a go at undertaking a simulated retrospective based on a dialogue sheet and will learn what a dialogue sheet is, how to use one, and find some new ways to improve your work.
