Save time, empower your teams and effectively upgrade your processes with access to this practical Retrospective Toolkit and guide. Address common challenges with best-practice templates, step-by-step work plans and maturity diagnostics for any Retrospective related project.

Download the Toolkit and in Three Steps you will be guided from idea to implementation results.

The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Retrospective specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Retrospective Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Retrospective improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the standard requirements:

  1. If you had to rebuild your organization without any traditional competitive advantages (i.e., no killer a technology, promising research, innovative product/service delivery model, etc.), how would your people have to approach their work and collaborate together in order to create the necessary conditions for success?

  2. how much testing is necessary in order to expose all the potential failure modes and situations of highly integrated complex systems?

  3. What do the funky, retrospective pleasures of museum-art have to offer when you yourself are the next big thing?

  4. You need to conduct a retrospective meeting prior to planning the next sprint. Do you know what you should do?

  5. Ask your people to rate own Retrospectives. How happy are others with dynamics, scope, and results?

  6. Do we ask in the sprint retrospective: What went well during the sprint?

  7. What is the outcome of the Sprint retrospective?

  8. Anatomy of a sprint: Sprint Retrospective?

  9. Is the impact that Retrospective has shown?


Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the Retrospective book in PDF containing requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

Your Retrospective self-assessment dashboard which gives you your dynamically prioritized projects-ready tool and shows your organization exactly what to do next:

  • The Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard; with the Retrospective Self-Assessment and Scorecard you will develop a clear picture of which Retrospective areas need attention, which requirements you should focus on and who will be responsible for them:

    • Shows your organization instant insight in areas for improvement: Auto generates reports, radar chart for maturity assessment, insights per process and participant and bespoke, ready to use, RACI Matrix
    • Gives you a professional Dashboard to guide and perform a thorough Retrospective Self-Assessment
    • Is secure: Ensures offline data protection of your Self-Assessment results
    • Dynamically prioritized projects-ready RACI Matrix shows your organization exactly what to do next:

 

STEP 3: Implement, Track, follow up and revise strategy

The outcomes of STEP 2, the self assessment, are the inputs for STEP 3; Start and manage Retrospective projects with the 62 implementation resources:

  • 62 step-by-step Retrospective Project Management Form Templates covering over 6000 Retrospective project requirements and success criteria:

Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:

  1. Requirements Management Plan: Do you know which stakeholders will participate in the requirements effort?

  2. Cost Management Plan: Does all Retrospective project documentation reside in a common repository for easy access?

  3. Cost Management Plan: Have all team members been part of identifying risks?

  4. Change Log: Is the submitted change a new change or a modification of a previously approved change?

  5. Cost Management Plan: Are key risk mitigation strategies added to the Retrospective project schedule?

  6. Procurement Audit: Are outsourcing and Public Private Partnerships considered as alternatives to in-house work?

  7. Stakeholder Management Plan: Is there a formal process for updating the Retrospective project baseline?

  8. Lessons Learned: If you had to do this Retrospective project again, what is the one thing that you would change (related to process, not to technical solutions)?

  9. Procurement Audit: Are review meetings organized during contract execution and do they meet demand?

  10. Activity Resource Requirements: Which logical relationship does the PDM use most often?

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any Retrospective project with this in-depth Retrospective Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Retrospective projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Retrospective and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Retrospective investments work better.

This Retrospective All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.

    Standard Requirements is a straightforward guide. It is a tool to help develop a detailed vision of all areas impacted by an implementation, and a useful tool for scoring readiness and implementation quality.
