I mentioned in my previous blog some tips for running a great retrospective. I am going to now expand on some of those ideas by giving you an insight into one of my themed retrospectives. Now as it is 31st October and the spookiest day of the year, this retrospective is going to embrace Halloween (we never too old, right?)!
So here are some ideas for you to play with if you are running a retrospective any time soon...
Spooky Sprint Retrospective!
As mentioned in my previous blog posts, I like to use a template from "Agile Retrospectives - Making Good Teams Great" to help guide my retrospectives, and this one is no different. The steps are:
- Set The Scene
- Gather Data
- Generate Insights
- Decide What To Do
- Close Retrospective
- Post it notes
- Whiteboard/flip chart
- Whiteboard/marker pens
Gather Data - Ghost Stories!
Generate Insights - Trick or Treat!
Decide What To Do - Pick a Door!
Close Retrospective - Spook of the Sprint!
