Project Retrospectives is a must have book for anyone who wants to run a post-mortem or other types of post project analysis. It is a soup to nuts book on how to run a retrospective. The book covers the mechanics of running a retrospective as well as a discussion about the philosophy and purpose of such tasks. The centerpiece is a cookbook of great, creative exercises. Included with each one, in fact, throughout the entire book, is a discussion on the psychology of the exercise, along with references for further reading. For those interested in providing consulting services in this area, there are also chapters covering the process of selling retrospectives to potential customers.
The book is extremely well written and a very quick and easy read (it took me a about 12 hours). Even those who don't run retrospectives will find this book useful. Certainly anyone participating in such an activity can benefit from a better understanding of how it can work (and will gain ideas to make their company's retrospectives more fun and insightful). The final chapters also include some discussion on conflict resolution in the workplace and ideas for promoting a good culture in the workplace.
