This story is about a team that had trouble getting everything tested by the end of the Sprint, and how, through visualization of work, they were able to change how they organized themselves, and started shipping software reliably.
Agile Retrospectives: Making Good Teams Great, by Larsen and Derby is probably the most talked-about book on Agile Retrospectives and it helped Joe understand the role of the retrospectives as well as to prepare and facilitate great retrospectives. This was the book that helped Joe learn to appreciate Agile Retrospectives.
