Roles for the Practice
September 27, 2010
This is a part of a series that was created to help you get the practice of retrospectives built into your company. This series will walk through the approach, necessary roles, in addition to guides for each role to help your company get started quickly.
There are 3 primary roles in a retrospectives practice:
- The CEO and executive team, who are responsible for supporting the effort, communicating its value, and ensuring that retrospectives are held regularly and that results are achieved.
- The facilitators, who are responsible for setting up and executing retrospective meetings and for following up to ensure that the changes get implemented.
- The team participants, who are responsible for actively and openly participating, getting the best ideas on the table, and prioritizing the ideas.
Throughout this practice kit, I’ll share the some guidelines to help each person initiate the practice of retrospectives.
Next week, I’ll provide some insights on the metrics that will help you improve your retrospective efforts.
