Practice Activities

  1. Identify points in your project life cycle at which performing a retrospective would be valuable.

  2. Select a recently completed project (or subproject, phase, or iteration) on which to perform a retrospective, one whose experiences and learnings would assist you in planning and executing your next project. Use Table 15-2 to develop a plan for this retrospective. Refer to the retrospective procedure to help you complete this worksheet.

  3. Hold the retrospective and add lessons learned from it to your organization’s lessons learned collection. (See Chapter 14.)
