The Iteration Retrospective is a short meeting held at the the end of each Iteration, wherein team members gather in a private, safe environment to discuss the efficacy of their practices and define improvements for the upcoming period. The quantitative portion reviews any metrics the team is using; the qualitative part discusses the various team practices, and the specific challenges that presented themselves. When issues have been identified, teams identify corrective actions needed to address those issues.
