Koos Coach in the "This is not Scrum" Comic (episode 5)

In my daily life as a Scrum Master, I witness many crazy situations. I want to share my discoveries via this comic series featuring Koos Coach, the silly Scrum Master struggling to understand and master Scrum.

Making your retrospectives as short as possible is not a good idea. The retrospective is a key inspection moment that should be carefully facilitated by the Scrum Master. 

A solid retrospective session carries the team through a series of phases:

  • check-in, 
  • re-living the sprint, 
  • identifying problems and opportunities, 
  • searching for root causes, 
  • brainstorming solutions, 
  • choosing improvement experiments, 
  • assigning tasks, 
  • closure. 

The retrospective time-box is 1,5 hours for a two week Sprint. Fitting all that work in the allocated time-box is quite a challenge!
