Learn from your retrospective

by Jun 22, 2016

This time last year I ran the Wellington Marathon.
At the time I described it as the “the hardest physical activity I have ever undertaken” and my daughter was kind enough to point out that I was “an idiot”; she was right.
At the time I blogged about mixing Agile with my training schedule; taking each few weeks training as a Sprint and holding a retrospective at the end. As a methodology it worked perfectly; it got me to the start line. Up to me to get to the finish.
And this year…well I learnt from last year’s retrospective…and I won’t be toeing the start line at 7:30am with the Marathoners. Because that’s what retrospectives are for; to learn, and more importantly take action from. If you don’t learn from your mistakes, or victories, then…then…what are you doing?
Anyway, I’ll still be there at 7:30 to see them on their way, and perhaps a little rueful that I’m not starting too.
Perhaps taking what I learnt, and with a new Agile plan, there’s another one in the old dog yet.
