The Purpose of Daily Standups and Retrospectives on Agile Teams (Eng)

An Agile approach to software development is considered to be light-weight. For example, there are few status meetings in the approach. Our focus is more on continuous planning and learning activities that are included in each iteration cycle. Two such highly effective activities are the Daily Standup, which is a daily planning session, and the Iteration Retrospective, a learning exercise to identify what has gone well and what could use improvement in the system. This presentation will talk about the value of each and how to make the most effective use of each for improving the delivery of value added software to the business.
