The Starfish Retrospective is ideal for up to 10 participants and works very well with newly formed teams or teams that have experienced a tough time.
A Retrospective, in general, is an important meeting the fosters continuous and sustainable development of a team's processes.
This Retrospective method helps the team to create a commitment. They don't just complain, but directly define measures that they themselves can refer to and implement.
The Starfish Retrospective therefore focuses on action formulated items in the areas of:
Start doing what makes the team more productive
More behaviours that make the team more effective
Less actions that affect the team negatively
Stop anything that blocks the team from moving forward
Continue doing what is already working for the team
