Sprint 6 — Wednesday

As your project winds down in the final sprint it’s time to reflect on what you’ve learned.

A big part of learning isn’t just “doing”, it’s also reflecting on what worked, what didn’t work, and how you can use this knowledge to improve. This is the core of continuous improvement.

Team projects are just one step on the path to your goals. Make the most of them by pausing to take stock of what you’ve learned.

Use the following questions as a start and modify or add your own to tailor your process of reflection to —  YOU.

  1. What went right?
  2. What went wrong?
  3. For each thing that went right or wrong a.) Why do you think it went right/wrong? b.) What could be done to make it go better? c.) For anything that went wrong how could it be detected and corrected sooner?d.) What would you do differently in future projects?
  4. Was there anything you or your team did that was counterproductive?
  5. Did you establish a personal connection with your teammates? Did you achieve a State of Flow with them?
