The Not Too Obvious Goal

For every new software project or system feature created during the scrum development process, product managers, developers, and software testers all toil to make things work as they should and could be. The goal to satisfy the client’s needs, the need to meet the requirements before the deadline, motivates everyone to produce remarkable work. This is great.

In between great works of software development, meanwhile, there’s another goal that’s not too obvious to everybody. After every sprint, in retrospective meetings, people share whatever it is that went well and issues that they thought delayed their progress. Possible strategies to improve processes are discussed. The aim is to be better at what they do in the long-term, to setup systems that pushes for growth after each project, to become eventual masters, not to settle for anything less excellent.
