Indelible proof of a healthy team

… or irrefutable evidence of an unhealthy team.


Can your team do an iteration retrospective with a minimum of venom and squirming?  Is everybody unafraid to speak up in a retrospective?  Can you calmly talk about what’s not going well and what is without retribution?

If you can answer these questions in the affirmative, you just might be a healthy team.  If you answer no, or if you have, let’s say, regularly scheduled mandatory team building meetings, you might need a checkup.
