Recommendation: Development Practices Radar

As you work together, it’s always good to take a pause in order to evaluate whether the practices you’re using are still effectively serving the team or not.

Facilitating the Process

We suggest having your team create a shared definition of (and then rating) the following topics included in the development practices radar retrospective in Retrium:

  1. Testing

  2. Code Standards

  3. Technical Debt

  4. Clear Scope

  5. Focus

  6. Deployment Process

You can always edit or replace a label with something else about the development practices that you want to assess during the “define” phase. Once the team has provided ratings during the “collect” stage, you’ll be able to explore where there’s agreement and where there are high or low scores in the “analyze” phase.

Analyzing the Results

If you find disagreement or lower scores on any of these dimensions during your radar retrospective, you might consider running a column-based retrospective as a way to gather more insights and have a deeper discussion on that topic specifically. For example, if you find low scores on your deployment process, you can have a retrospective to understand where there might be concerns.
