This week we used this quick and easy online card wall to prepare for a retrospective:
We created a wall with 3 columns – Worked Well, Could Improve, and Actions. The face to face retro was booked for the afternoon and a link emailed out to the team and stakeholders in the morning to give them a few hours to ponder. What I like about this approach is that individuals can brainstorm whilst they’re close to the work. It also saves a lot of time in the retro enabling the team to focus on what to improve. We had a few team members who were remote due to the current snow storm so it enabled them to contribute and participate.
All in all, quick and simple to use. I will be using this tool again.
