InsideOut Retrospective



"Inside Out" Retrospective is the retrospective that focuses on the feelings that each team member has. All the feelings will be depicted on the inside-out character. The purpose of the “Inside Out” retrospective is to examine the feelings the team members have felt during the sprint, therefore they can have future action items in place to make it better.
