      Please pass along the information about the following class to anyone
      you think may be interested in improving the outcomes of their
      projects. I'd like your help in getting the word out. For a fuller

      "Facilitating Project Retrospectives and Reviews: A Practitioner's
      Toolkit"

      At the end of a project, a team and organization stand to learn a great
      deal by reflecting on their experiences. More than just a simple
      review, the ritual of a retrospective gives a team a chance to tap into
      new discoveries about what works, what doesn't work in their
      environment and what could be learned from prior experiences. By
      conducting retrospective at the end of projects, organizations can
      become skilled at acquiring and using collective wisdom, accessing best
      practice thinking, avoiding faulty decisions or reinvented wheels, and
      assessing the chances for success for future innovations. Such group
      processes require skilled group process design and skillful
      facilitation. This one and a half day interactive course, based on
      Project Retrospectives: A Handbook for Team Reviews by Norman L. Kerth,
      will give participants an experiential understanding of retrospectives
      from both a participant's and a facilitator's point of view, as well as
      provide practice in retrospective design.

      Course Objectives
      • Participants will gain a more thorough understanding of the theory
      and practice of project retrospectives.
      • Participants will gain insight into the role and expectations of a
      retrospective facilitator.
      • Participants will experience both participation in a project
      retrospective and practice facilitating retrospective exercises.
      • Participants will take away tools, techniques and tips for
      facilitating effective retrospectives in their own organizations.

      Thanks,
      Diana
