Hero’s Journey Retrospective format
The protagonist of your story. The person or group embarking on a journey to reach their goal. This may be in the form of the customer, the team or the organisation at large.
What is the hero trying to achieve, and what challenges will they face along the way? Plan for the risks your team might face and how to mitigate them.
Who are the people that can assist the hero on their quest? Is there a member of the team or another department with a specific skill set that can help?
What tools and resources does the hero have at their disposal? What programs, software or company procedures can assist you in your work?
What grand reward awaits the hero at the end of their quest? When the project is complete, what will the benefits be for the team and the public?
