It is common to have a meeting that focuses on continuous improvement, for multiple teams. One term for this kind of meeting is “Program Retrospective,” which reflects its cross-team nature, and which often occurs at a strategic inflection point, such as just after a product release, or after a certain number of iterations. Unlike a Sprint Retrospective, where ONLY the members of a single team attend, in a Program Retrospective, it is common for each team to send one or two representatives, and for various stakeholders to attend. A Program Retrospective is a particularly good opportunity to surface issues that more than one team faces, since it is often the case that people are present who are in a position to help address those issues.
