Agile retrospective techniques
With a range of templates that you can customise – you have a toolkit of agile retro ideas ready to go.
What Went Well? and What went less well? is a common agile retrospective technique that allows your team to objectively focus on successes and to identify areas for improvement. Asking the question What do we want to try next? creates a forward-looking perspective. Finally, What puzzles us? identifies potential hurdles.
The Start, Stop, Continue template is an action-oriented retrospective technique that is focused on the behaviours and actions of a team. Use this template when you need clear direction on where the team should be focusing their time and energy.
The Anchors and Engine is a fun retrospective technique that uses the metaphor of a speedboat heading for its destination. This identifies burning issues that are holding the team back from achieving what they need to do (anchors) and what is propelling them forward (engines). Use this retrospective idea to remove blockers and support motivators in your project.
The Starfish retrospective is an expanded version of the Start Stop Continue template which allows you to gather more insight into people’s thinking about the perceived value of activities. The greater level of detail is a great option for Scrum Masters who want to better understand how to better allocate resources and time in their project.
The Mad Sad Glad is a retrospective technique that speaks to the emotional state of the team, giving scrum masters a tool to find out what might be motivating or demotivating the team. Use private brainstorming to promote honest answers and help build team culture and engagement.
The 4Ls Liked, Learned, Lacked and Longed For designed by Mary Gorman and Ellen Gottesdiener provides a balanced approach in terms of emotional versus logical, and positive versus negative . Using this retrospective technique at your scrum meeting provides a wider net and may allow for greater participation due to its multi-faceted approach.
