A half-day course providing a deep dive into Agile Retrospectives, exploring how the PMO can drive continuous improvement.

Agile Retrospectives are one of the five events described in the Scrum Framework. They are a vital part of the cadence for agile teams and essential to developing a culture of continuous improvement and wellbeing.

But teams often struggle with retrospectives, failing to see results and sometimes giving up on retrospectives entirely.

This course explores how the PMO can support delivery teams by facilitating innovative and relevant retrospectives that people will want to engage with, and by mentoring agile teams and helping them to run effective retrospectives of their own.
We will show you how effective retrospectives should be run and will give you actionable methods and techniques that you can use to generate insight, encourage reflection, and create a culture of continuous improvement.


This half-day live virtual course is delivered in two parts:

Part 1

  • What retrospectives are,
  • Why they are held frequently
  • How retrospectives should be structured
  • How retrospectives drive continuous improvement
  • Using retrospectives outside of agile (projects, programmes and beyond)!

Part 2

  • Applying the retrospective structure
  • Keeping retrospectives formats fresh and engaging
  • Designing your own retrospectives.

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
