This two day instructor led training course is aimed at improving an agile team’s performance in retrospectives by addressing the cognitive biases that prevent issues and events entering the retrospective or distort the team’s understanding of those issues. This course also explores several options for mitigating the adverse effects of these cognitive biases, together with the potential consequences of a mitigation approach.


On completion of the course, attendees will have an advanced understanding of how cognitive biases adversely affect the retrospective process. In addition, attendees will be able to:
1. Understand the event/retrospective lifecycle, whereby events and issues that have occurred during the sprint are identified, selected, discussed, resolved, and lessons learned.
2. Understand how cognitive and other human biases inhibit learning during this lifecycle.3. 3. Identify key risk points in this lifecycle, where team members are vulnerable to cognitive biases blocking an important event or distorting its understanding.
4. Implement mitigation approaches to address the more serious consequences of these biases.


This course is for all people who are involved in agile retrospectives, irrespective of their role or level of experience. In addition, stakeholders to agile projects will benefit from attending.
The effectiveness of this course is enhanced if the whole team attends this course together.
