What is a DAKI retrospective?
The Agile Retrospective Questions
This style of retrospective can be used to refine product features through to communication patterns within the team. You can use the topics as themes, as opposed to being too narrow in terms of it’s focus.

Ideas and tips for your DAKI retrospectives
- Use the concepts of brain writing – give people “silent time” to write, read and respond to each topic. You can even open up your retrospective before your meeting to allow people to add ideas and concepts prior to the meeting.
- Use the way teams vote to manage culture. You’ll get interesting insights when people add ideas and votes. Too much in the drop column may indicate an over zealous scope. Too much in the keep and nothing in the add or improve columns signals a need for innovation or creativity.
- A thank you goes a long way. Give a shout out to the team at the end of the meeting.
- In face to face meetings, doing things digitally allows you to collect ideas, vote and comment anonymously, and saves manual collation. If running your meeting digitally, use a video conferencing tool to give that personal touch.
- Rotate the role of facilitator. Changing the role can break the routine.
