As previously threatened, I asked my team members if any of them would like to take charge of retrospectives. To which I got the response “but that’s not the way to do things: we try to share knowledge and skills wherever possible.” Oh, right – I’m glad somebody remembers that sort of thing, since obviously I’m not up to the task!
Anyways, after a bit of discussion, we decided that it didn’t make sense for us all to go off and read the book right now. So one of us volunteered to read the book, run one retrospective, and rope the rest of us into running subsequent retrospectives, while sharing an overview of the ideas from the book and being available to suggest techniques from the book. In other words, taking ownership of the task without unduly linking that to carrying out the work (or hogging the knowledge). Yay.
