Continuous Improvement: Beyond Retros
16 September, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm AESTFree
We seem to try to foster a mindset of continuously and relentlessly striving for improvement with mainly one practice: retrospectives. For years, retros have been our default – and often our only – continuous improvement tool. Aurelien certainly used to think that retros were the most important ceremony. As a coach, he previously considered them his main tool to drive improvement.
In this talk, Aurelien prompts us to look beyond retros and explore what other tools (Toyota Kata, improvement boards, etc.) and concepts we can explore to foster a continuous improvement mindset. Drawing on his own journey, Aurelien will share experiments he has conducted and is planning to carry out— discussing what worked for him and, more importantly, what hasn’t and where he failed.
