It’s the last episode of the year. Let’s look back a bit, and look forward a bit.
In this episode I talk about why retrospectives are so great, how to sell your organization on retrospectives, and how to do them. And then I do a retrospective on the last year of this podcast.
Check out my article “To 10x Your Profits Start With Retrospectives” for more details on the incredible bottom-line power of retrospectives.

- Rob and I did a retrospective on the podcast in December 2016.
- The Pros of Debriefs from the Afterburner blog (because they couldn’t think of any cons).
- Also from the Afterburner blog, Debrief Meetings? Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That.
- Quick Take: What common practice has been found to increase team performance by 20%? blog post by Wendy Hirsch, linking to the meta-analysis of 46 studies on debriefs (also called after action reviews or lessons learned), Scott Tannenbaum and Christopher Cerasoli that I mentioned in the episode.
- Overdeliver by Brian Kurtz (the topic of next week’s podcast episode)
