Hot Air Balloon retrospective format
What is making us fly? What supports our success? What makes us feel great about the work we’re doing? What’s offering us a great return on time invested?
What is keeping us down? What is making it difficult for us to deliver value? What is needed but cumbersome?
Hugs and Kudos
Who do we want to acknowledge? What actions (no matter how small) made the last sprint easier, better, or simply more fun?
This style of retrospective can be used when your team is having trouble completing a task. Having the ability to see what has been slowing you down and what you have achieved despite this, can be helpful in providing confidence when trying to complete a difficult task.
