Every month we have a company retrospective for at least 90 minutes. In 3 years it has proven to be of huge value. Every month we get on the same page with our values, what we are doing, what we want to do, and how we are going to focus on one thing.

Personally I can’t see how people don’t get value from Retrospectives. OK – perhaps they are poorly run, hopefully us blogging plans will help with that. If you have never experienced one, try this one. You can even do it alone, by yourself.
