The Hot Air Balloon Retrospective


The Hot Air Balloon is a simple activity for helping the team identify things that makes them move faster, and things that slow them down.

  • The Sunny Skies represent everything coming up that makes us feel good and happy during work.

  • The Hot Air represents everything helping us to achieve the sprint goal, pushing the team's balloon to go even faster.

  • The Sandbags represent everything that is slowing us down an holding us back on the journey towards the sprint goal.

  • The Storm Clouds represent potential risks ahead that could jeopardize future sprint work.
