I came to the Philippines before about four weeks.

First I made a document about Retrospective MTG and Sprint Planning MTG.
Please see below for the details about Retrospective MTG.

Scrum pillars, again

  • Keep the 3 pillars in your mind at least though there are so many rules about scrum.
    • Inspection
    • Adaptation
    • Transparency

Retrospective

  • Most IMPORTANT ceremony(event).
  • Inspect your process.
  • Create a plan for improvement.
  • Continuous improvement.

Discussion about TEAM issues, rather than personal issues.

  • Ex.

    • Process
    • Practice
    • Collaboration
    • Working Environment
    • Tool

KPT2(Keep[good], Problem, Try, Todo)

  • One of the Retrospective methods

  • Typical transfer of items between fields
    • Keep -> Definition of “Done"
    • Problem -> Impediment list
    • Try -> Todo
      • Pick up next actions from Try
    • Todo -> PBI(Product Backlog Item)

How to

  1. Check previous KPT.
    1. Check all items(post-it) on the Todo area(because there might be any items which were put last retrospective).
      1. If there is any item which has a good effect for previous sprint, it move onto the Keep area.
      2. If the item doesn't have any good effect for previous sprint, you remove it from KPT.
      3. If you want to consider more about the item, you can keep it on the Todo area.
      4. continue until checking on the Todo area completes
    2. Check all items(post-it) on the Problem area.
      1. If there is any item which can/want to solve, it remains.
      2. If you can't do anything to solve the item, you remove it from KPT.
    3. Check all items(post-it) on the Keep area.
      1. If there is any item which is already enough to share, no need to emphasize any more, you remove it from the Keep area.
      2. You remove "good" stuff, too.

      3. If the item must be still there as "KEEP", it remains.
  2. Check the current status.
    1. Write "Keep" stuffs that we had better to continue. You can write "Good" stuff, like a "Released" too. Write one stuff per one post-it. Keep quiet while writing and Write within 3 minutes.
    2. Put the post-it on the Keep area, then read it for all members. It goes one by one until it completes. If anyone put same stuff as yours, you can put it on the post-it.
    3. Write "Problem" stuffs that we need to improve. It goes same way like above.
  3. Examine improvement plan.
    1. Write "Try" stuffs to solve a "Problem" stuff. Think about "keep" stuff more progressive. Write one stuff per one post-it. Keep quiet while writing and Write within 3 minutes.
    2. Put the post-it on the Try area, then read it for all members. It goes one by one until it completes.
  4. Agreement of Improvement Plans.
    1. Pick up "Try" stuffs that is executable during next sprint.
    2. Move chosen stuffs to the Todo area.
    3. Make agreements!
