Run Successful Retrospectives and Take the Corresponding Actions

  1. We believe that retrospectives are not only there to solve problems but also to generate ideas.
  2. We have a retrospective meeting at the end of every Sprint and one at the beginning of every quarter. We want everyone to provide feedback with no hesitation, and we vote on our actions and focus on the top three or four.
  3. We do not ask the person who mentioned a problem to also come up with a solution: we ask for volunteers and identify key people to create a working group. Here is a great HBR article on this topic [1].
  4. We switch the retrospective formats every month; otherwise, it can become tiresome to use the same plan every time [2].
