Two Teams Go Lean: An Audience-wide Retrospective

On April 9, 2013, Terrence McGovern and Lori Masuda facilitated a live retrospective of two business functional teams that piloted lean practices at the Agile / Lean Practitioners Meetup.

See The slides:

Event Description:

We will be presenting on how an Editorial and Marketing Team used Agile / Lean practices to execute their projects and work. This presentation will be followed by a panel discussion where team members and stakeholders talk about what 
prompted them to try it and how it worked for the execution teams, while sharing the good, the bad, and the future. This event is co-sponsored with PMI NYC.


Update on event format:

In order to keep the event concise and offer the opportunity for audience participation we will be conducting a live, public retrospective where our Editorial and Marketing Teams will write down what worked well in their Agile adoption and what didn't work.

2. looking or directed backward.

In Scrum:




1. time-boxed meeting

2. a Scrum Ceremony where the team reflects on what worked well and what can be improved.
