Regular retrospectives at the team and project level are a fantastic way for the team to take time for reflection on what is going well and what isn’t. There are many ways to do retroes. DRS has run a retro every month since December last year and for most of them we have used the standard “What did we do well, What did we not do well, What can we improve” methodology. We also make sure that the facilitation of the sessions is rotated so everyone gets a go.
For the retro we ran in early May we used a different methodology called Start, Stop, Continue. What do you want to start doing, what do you want to stop doing and what do you want to continue doing. I was surprised to find out that there were many more things we wanted to start doing than I thought. This link provides more details on this retro methodology and other ideas as well.
