For the announcement of World Retrospective Day on Tuesday Feb 27th 2019

Notes from the Virtual Meeting in 2018 ( Feb 6 2018 )


Seeing "Risk" or "Trouble" during a retrospective can be very subjective.

Stock Phrase: Assuming we did all that, what do you expect to be different? What gets unblocked? How does your day change?

Engage, Listen, Confront = Clarity

Teams sometimes have Trouble getting to Specifics.

Other questions raised

Size of team during the retrospective

Good sound headsets for remote teams = more important than video

IceBreakers to start, like Pictionary of your Superpower

Agenda for a Retrospective is a Five Part Play . . .

Set the Stage.

Gather data.

Generate insights

Decide what to do


Tools Weave ( formerly Innovation Games Online ) an article on how facilitating is Responsibility, which can be a little frightening.
