The agile42 coaches are experts. We take great pride in our tradition of coaching, which is continuously being adapted to the needs of the company and teams. Our approach is simple, but not easy.
All-team retrospectives (retrospectives that are attended by multiple teams, such as those of an entire program, or even organization) can be an important opportunity to inspect and reflect on how teams work together as a team of teams. It is also a chance to practice empiricism at a program level: be transparent, inspect, and adapt. We believe that mirroring scrum ceremonies at the program level can serve as an important success factor for organizational agility.
