Welcome to Part 12 of My First Agile Project. Inspired by Peter's recent 5 minute retrospective article, this time I'll be talking about our retrospectives, which we termed our GBU or Good, Bad, and Ugly meetings. Our vendor brought these GBU meetings to us, along with the Scrum methodology, and while we weren't doing everything by the book (not a surprise if you've read any of the other parts of this series) I think they were very valuable and still light-weight and easy enough to be adapted for other teams looking for retrospectives.

Read on for more on how we ran these meetings, what we got out of them, and what we'll be doing differently in our next meetings.
