|Holding a retrospective ritual is a very old idea. It has served the human species well, as the stories of hunts are retold around campfires and the stories of child rearing are shared as baskets are woven. It has survived this long because it works. Its a fundamental vehicle to discover, share, and pass along the learning from experiencesomething we also call wisdom.
I have one question:
Is your organization good at acquiring and using its wisdom in creating software?
