Survivor Retrospective

Reflect on past performance and identify opportunities for continuous improvement with the Survivor retrospective template.

Guidance for use:

Stage 1 - Desert Island Icebreaker

Pick the 3 key items you'd take if you were stranded on a desert island. Then discuss with the team around the reasons why!

Stage 2 - Survivor Retro Board

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

Sole Survivor - What went well?

Risk your vote - Where can we experiment?

Immunity Amulet - What risks are on the horizon?

Extra Vote - What could we do differently with more time?

Island Storm - What didn't go great?

Protect your vote - What do we keep doing?

Game Changers - Heap some praise on your team mates!

Vibe of the Tribe - What makes our team culture great?

Stage 3 - Dot Vote

Team members use their Survivor tokens to vote for the most valuable tickets that we're created and will lead to the most constructive steps moving forward.

Stage 5 - Rate the Retro

Once all areas of the board have been covered invite the team to rate the retro by placing an immunity idol on what waqshed up on shore from Old Boot (Waste of time) to Treasure Chest (Productive and engaging session)
