Agile Workflows

Star Wars Sith Lord Retrospective

Stage 1 - Icebreaker

Get the conversation flowing by creating your own Sith name and choosing a Sith power!

Stage 2 - Sith Lord Retrospective

Teams will then make their way around the board adding their thoughts and feelings while covering each of the themes listed:

AT LAST WE WILL REVEAL OURSELVES TO THE JEDI - What new knowledge was uncovered the team can start using?

YOUR FEEBLE SKILLS ARE NO MATCH FOR THE POWER OF THE DARKSIDE - Are there any skill that could be brought into the team to improve it?

I SENSE GREAT FEAR IN YOU SKYWALKER - What creates uncertainty and puts us on our heels, how can we mitigate this?

YOU'RE NOT ALONE - A chance to shout out team members who have helped each other and raise any additional support that is needed.

I CANNOT BE BETRAYED. I CANNOT BE BEATEN - Reflecting on what makes the team great and the strongest assets in the group.

I FIND YOUR LACK OF FAITH DISTURBING - Focusing on team/ scrum values and understanding how we can improve commitment to them.

Stage 3 - Rate the Retro

Once all areas of the board have been covered invite the team to rate the retro by placing a dot/ shape/ post-it on the appropriate rating from 1 (Waste of time) to 5 (Productive and engaging session)
