Let Your Voice Be Heard: First Annual Agile Retrospectives report


Since our first call for input by way of the survey, we've received a lot of feedback on the Annual Agile Retrospectives Report, or AARR as we've started referring to it at Retrium. We've heard from some folks that there are additional topics that we should be covering; others want to see the survey broken into different sections. Regardless, there is one common theme in the response we've received in our feedback - it's about time! 

While the response we've received has already exceeded our expectations, we decided to extend the deadline to this Friday, May 12 to gather as much feedback as possible. Click here to take the survey now.

And the challenges teams face in retrospectives are just as varied.
