Retrospectives

You can download any or all of our Retrospective formats and then individually set them up on any type of canvas or whiteboard platform. Each team member can place “post-it notes” on the selected format to visually reveal:

  • What went well during the Sprint 
  • What problems were encountered 
  • What opportunities can improve the team’s effectiveness

All of our formats optionally allow the team to provide other types of feedback as desired. With your team members participating in this interactive way, Sprint Retrospectives can be an entertaining and a productive way for continuous improvement. So, go forth and have fun!
