I am reading a book called Agile Retrospectives and the author suggests splitting retro's into 4 stages. Two of the stages seem so similar:
Gathering Data and Gathering insights, seem the same as I cannot imagine some of these exercises would work if you did both a gathering data and generating insight exercise.
Some of the generating insight exercises require you too...gather data! Very confusing. Are people using both of these stages in retros?
Does that make sense? Any thoughts?
Update: My confusion stems from my inability to link to a gathering data exercise with a gathering insight phase. That is my problem.
For example: I make the team brainstorm what went well, what did not go well in the data gathering stage, then do I simply set that aside and move onto a data insight exercise which also, in it self, requires the team to write a bunch of ideas down.
