Managing a long-term agile team creates specific challenges that are not usually felt in project-based approaches. Under the pressure of daily and monthly work, teams ignore issues and opportunities that can only be acknowledged and tackled on a longer time frame.

Two specific yearly meetings, started almost by accident, have proved themselves by driving long-term improvements of outputs, tools, process, and team spirit.

  • The yearly strategy meeting drives the team to create new and improved outputs.
  • The yearly team meeting acknowledges successful practices and proposes improved practices.

Attendees will learn how to adapt these meetings to their own needs.

  • When and how to conduct the meetings.
  • How to avoid situations that may hinder the meetings.
