Collaboration is maybe the most important quality to Scrum teams. The core of Scrum is to maximize the collaboration between the team members, but also between the team and the Product Owner  (and the customer). This is important both small single team projects and bigger multiple team projects.

In the retrospectives the previous sprint is evaluated and improvements identified.

Don’t forget  the collaboration aspect in the sprint retrospectives. It is way too important to neglect!

  • How can we improve our daily stand-ups?
  • How can we get the product owner more involved in our work? How can we help him to groom the product backlog?
  • How can we improve the collaboration with other teams in our project?

So, in the next retrospective, try to focus on the collaboration side.
