ScrumDesk 8.47: Retrospectives, Objectives and Key Results, Root Cause Analysis
Does your team like the retrospective format and use it even for non-retro brainstorming workshops?
Create a retrospective session to keep all session ideas in one place. Every session might have a retrospective theme assigned so the team knows what to focus on in their brainstorming.
Great agile teams are able to provide hundreds of ideas after a couple of sessions. Scrum Masters and team members usually work further with retro ideas thus orient might not be easy over time.
ScrumDesk enables to filter ideas either based on the retro idea implementation status, assigned person, or based on votes provided by the team in sessions.
Retrospective idea tags & history
Now you can mark retro ideas with tags to further categorize them maybe by team, role, location, project, business unit, or by customer.
Sometimes it is also good to see who changed what, therefore retro idea changes are tracked too.
Objectives & Key Results editor
Objectives and Key Results method works very well with Agile practices for the development of great products. OKR editor in ScrumDesk application help connect objectives and key results to other project assets and provides a continuous overview of the project progress.
The latest ScrumDesk edition gives product owners control over tracking of objectives status (To do, In progress, Completed, Accepted, Rejected, Canceled).
Even the objective is in progress, theobjectiveconfidence of the team members can indicate the achievability of objectives early.
Progress in ScrumDesk was calculated as a combination of the progress of related items and the key results. The real-life shown the necessity of multiple scenarios for the progress calculation.
Therefore in the latest version user can choose the best scenario that fit the business model:
Progress based on the progress of the key result and all relations.
Progress based on relations only that fit the agile product development where key results follow the progress of related epics automatically.
Progress based on key result progress only where backlog items can be connected to the objective, but the progress is tracked manually.
Maximum value that the team should achieve can be requested as precise or at least.
We also added ‘increase by’ and ‘reduce by’ to the list for key result maximum value.
