The Last Retrospective


Over time each team goes through Tuckman’s stages of group development. This „Last Retro“ template is of course dedicated to the Adjourning phase. It should be serious but not too serious. Rather than bring up to-dos, you will focus on interpersonal aspects and help people mourning & laughing again. As for many people this is a tough situation. But check it out yourself ;-)

How to use this template

  1. Set the context by saying a few introductory words.

  2. Choose a funeral song and talk about it.

  3. Prepare your teams obituary in the main part. Gather sticky notes about your „Struggles & Controversies“, your „Highlights & Achievements“ and „Anecdotes“ to remember. Bonus: do an freestyle obituary by combining the key issues into spoken word.

  4. Write an epitaph.
