In this recorded Google Talk, Esther Derby and Diana Larson (authors of Agile Retrospectives: Making Good Teams Great), provide and introduction and best practices to effective Agile Retrospectives. Derby and Larson explain how to keep interest up for the retrospectives, how to make suggested improvements stick, and how to best maintain the positive outcomes of the retrospectives during the lifetime of your team.

The video is valuable not only to leaders who are interested in implementing Agile Retrospectives, but also can be used as a tool to explain to team members exactly what they can expect and learn from implementing retrospectives differently than what they perhaps are used to (this being a “lessons learned” at the end of a project).
This ability to change course during a project allows for remarkable results—potentially pulling a failing project back from disaster to success, or (in a much less dramatic sense), allowing for already great projects to get even better.
