Six Weapons of Influence in action
As a group, we have committed to following agile development through the scrum process [social proof]. Retrospectives are an important part of the process – one that we all need to improve upon in order to better see the benefits [social proof and consistency].
We realize that retrospectives are not easy and take time. It’s no simple task to ferret out good retrospective items and put them in a form that can be actionable [align with audience].
In order to better support retrospectives, upper management will commit to allow time to work on retrospective items during sprints if the retrospective items are written as actionable stories [Reciprocation]. We also commit to providing, upon your request, retrospective coaching for individuals or groups, and will share examples of good and bad retrospective items. In return we ask for your willingness to continue retrospectives and your support in working with us on improving efficiency/quality/delivery [Reciprocation].
