Documentation: Retrospectives

The work with updating my course material continues. This is the first draft of the new version of the documentation for the module Retrospectives, with grammatical errors, spelling errors and all.

A module is a part of a full course. In a day we go through 4-6 modules depending on how deep we need to go with each module in that particular course. The module is normally presented by a small lecture by me, illustrations on the whiteboard and on flipchart pages, questions from the participants, and one or more exercises. The documentation collects the main points from the module, together with the notes that the participants make themselves.

The module Retrospective can be experienced in the courses Introduction to Agile methods - Lean, Scrum & Kanban (link in Swedish) and the course Scrum Master (link in Swedish).

In order to fit screens (the material is distributed digitally) the documentation is in landscape orientation. Open it using a PDF-viewer and read it in full screen mode.

Infographic: Forecasting

I have created an overview over a couple of development forecasting techniques: one using estimates only with no empirical data, one using only empirical data and no attempts to estimate, and two that mix subjective estimation with objective observation. This is from the Smidigt! module "Development Planning".

Infographic: Scrum Overview

The "Smidigt! Program" (link in Swedish) is an attempt to arrange my bits of knowledge regarding agile, lean, teal, organization, leadership etc in a consistent whole of actionable tools that collaborations of all sorts (organizations, teams, projects) can take off the shelf, learn, and start to use. It is like an "operating system" for collaborations, but modular so that you don't have to implement everything at once.

During the year of 2016 I have a special project: I am doing an overhaul of the program, creating more tools and experimenting with the formats. One format that I use a lot is the infographic: a one-pager that presents the content of a module in a very dense way. Print them on an A3 and put them on the wall!

Here is the latest infographic, from the Module "Scrum Overview": infographic-scrum.pdf
