Agile Workflows

Retrospective - Chinese New Year

Here's to having fun in our retrospective sessions but also being professional and working on improvements. From my perspective, there's no 'one-board-fits-all' so feel free to adjust the text/board adjusted to your teams need. 

This is a retrospective board where you're able to touch upon:

  • Iteration check-in/mood as an icebreaker.

  • Lucky: What went well this iteration?

  • Unlucky: What didn't go well this iteration?

  • Luck to bring: What kind of luck would you like to bring into the next iteration or going forward?

  • Action items: What kind of improvements should the team prioritize going forward?

  • Red envelope space: Wish your team good luck or give someone feedback (luck) 

The timeboxing for this session depends on the team size, but I'd prefer 50-90 minutes ish. 

Tips! While your team is writing the notes, make sure to play some instrumental Chinese music in the background.  "

Currently working as a Scrum Master where my biggest focus is the individuals in the team. We're working in a remotely universe and I'm always trying to find new ways to motivate the team in a fun way. To build amazing software we need a motivated and a well-being team, and creating fun retrospectives where we mix fun but also important work is one way for me to do it.
