[Micronet] TODAY: Agile Brown Bag: Amplifying Success, Turning Around Failure: Noon to 1:30: 101 Warren Hall

Judy Dobry-2

The project's over.  It was a big success.  How do you capture the magic for your next project?  Or maybe you fell on your face. How do you turn failure into success next time?  In both cases, one excellent answer is to have a retrospective.

Retrospectives are powerful tools for deconstructing success and failure.  They help you build a toolbox of what works and what doesn't increasing the odds of success on all of your projects. 

Our presenter, Donna Seaward from Haas, is well positioned to help us learn how to run retrospectives.  Donna is a co-founder of the Agile Brown Bag Users Group and one of the campus' most knowledgeable Agile practitioners. She'll be using many of the exercises used in the Berkeley Extension class on retrospectives to get us started with this key Agile technique.

So come on out at noon and make retrospectives part of your toolkit.

Judy (on behalf of the Agile Organizing Committee)
