Iteration retrospectives are a tool many XP and Agile teams use to help themselves learn faster and collaborate better, but I haven't seen much description of them. This article takes a cut at identifying some patterns: http://xp123.com/xplor/xp0509/index.shtml
I've been a long time fan of end of project post-mortems and many of these patterns are familiar to me from that setting. The XP teams I've worked on have tended to work in one week iterations and I'm skeptical that trying to do such a formal review so frequently would be effective, but I can see the value of such a discussion every 3-4 weeks.
