I often see the challenge in many Scrum Teams or organizations, that they are too busy to do any improvements. Maybe they even stop doing retrospectives, because they have so many problems and too many tasks to complete. In that situation doing regular Retrospective is more needed than ever before, because they really need to change and improve.

When you feel you are too busy, you also need to look at the situation from an overall view.

So, when you feel too busy, slow down to be able to do more.
