Dwelling On The Past: The Importance Of Project Retrospectives (Part 1)
We should always look for opportunities to grow and improve. Retrospectives and reflections allow you to codify what you’ve learned from experience, to document mistakes and avoid future ones, and to increase your potential to grow in the future. Agile methodologies typically include time for retrospectives throughout a project. Regardless of your methodology, all teams would benefit from having a retrospective at the conclusion of a project.
Additionally, we can learn from our mistakes, identify what works well, and better understand ourselves through personal reflection.
