How do agile teams ensure their own retrospective improvement actions are implemented?
Why this is the correct answer
Agile teams ensure their own retrospective improvement actions are implemented by adding improvement stories to the Team Backlog to implement in the next Iteration. During the retrospective, the team discusses what went well and what didn't, identifies improvement opportunities, and comes up with action items to address them. These action items are then prioritized and added to the Team Backlog for implementation in the upcoming Iterations.
By adding these improvement stories to the Team Backlog, the team ensures that they are prioritized and included in the work that the team will be doing in the future. This also ensures that the team is held accountable for implementing the improvements, as they have committed to doing so by adding them to the backlog. Additionally, as the team continuously reviews and updates their backlog during Iteration Planning and other events, they can monitor progress on the implementation of these improvements and adjust their plans as necessary.
Overall, adding retrospective improvement stories to the Team Backlog ensures that the team's identified improvement opportunities are not forgotten or left behind, and are instead incorporated into the team's ongoing work.
