The value of a retrospective lies in the initiatives and actions that follow the reflection and improve the team's performance sustainably.

5 tips for running a retrospective meeting:

1. Install a safe environment. Like with every team reflection exercise, ensuring a climate of psychological safety is crucial. Make sure everyone is and feels involved. Focus on learning and not on blaming. And agree on the confidentiality of the meeting: what happens there stays there.

2. Organize individual reflection and allow people to talk in pairs first before sharing with the larger group. Discuss the pain points, learnings, achievements, etc... theme per theme, and make sure every voice has been heard.

3. Start with the aspects that went well. Starting strong brings positive energy and helps you through the harder nuts to crack.

4. Help the team switch from problems to solutions by defining the learnings immediately after framing the obstacles.

5. Go from solution to action. Agree on which steps need to be taken and hold each other accountable. Make the actions and next steps feasible so you can celebrate successes.
