This is a classic retro format and good for teams starting out on their agile journey.



Instructions for running successfully

  • Using a collaborative tool such as Miro, or powerpoint/slides (if running virtually) or whiteboard/wall (if running in person) to create four sections; 'We Liked', 'We Learned', 'We Did Differently' and 'We Were Puzzled By'

  • Ask each person to write at least one suggestion for each category:

    • Liked : e.g a process, way of working, piece of code, achievement (can be about you or another person) etc that was pleasing

    • Learned: e.g a piece of knowledge, a way of working, a code specific thing etc that you didn't know about or didn't know as much about, before the sprint.

    • Did Differently: e.g a process, a way of working, a component build etc that you've approached in a new way this sprint.

    • Were Puzzled By: e.g a process, a way of working, a component, a requirement etc that you were confused by

n.b this can be within the team or more broadly with the wider company

  • Depending on how much time there is/people in the group then either dot vote to slim down the discussion points or go through all items a group at a time

  • Ask each person to give additional colour about why they wrote the item and if they think there's any actions to take, as well as bringing in views of the wider group

  • Note actions and chase up progress during the sprint
