Virtual Retrospectives for Geographically Dispersed Software Teams
May/June 2011 (vol. 28 no. 3)
pp. 12-15
One of the biggest challenges that organizations face today in holding and learning from retrospectives is the issue of distributed teams. Even though we know that face-to-face meetings are better, we often deal with budget constraints and time pressure. I was happy to meet John at the 2010 SATURN conference and learn of his experience at Intel. He has a good, useful story to share and, after all, learning from the past is what retrospectives are all about!
