The Sprint Retrospective happens at the end of each sprint and is an opportunity to review progress and make improvement. The team look at the last sprint went in terms of 'individuals, interactions, processes, tools and the Definition of Done' (scrum.org). stakeholdermap.com
Sprint Retrospective approachesThis template uses a typical approach called 'starfish' which organises the meeting into things we will:
- start doing
- stop doing
- keep doing
- do more of
- do less of
Also common is to organise the session around:
- What went well?
- What didn't go so well?
- What will we do next?
- What questions do we have?
