The Book Club retrospective is a fun retro idea to help your team review the story of their last sprint. It helps position your team to offer an overview of their last iteration, identify the challenges they faced and celebrate those who helped overcome them.
This is a great agile retrospective idea to use following a difficult sprint. The team can choose how they talk about their experiences; be it a thriller, mystery, or even a work of non-fiction.
Using this format can help diffuse tension and lighten the mood. Unexpected problems and challenges are rephrased as Plot Twists.
The contributions of team members are showcased by celebrating people who helped create stories and resolve issues. Lastly, the team can be in charge of their own story by writing what happens in the next chapter.
