Three Little Pigs

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 three sections; 'Straw', 'Wood' and 'Bricks'

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

    • Straw: one thing which we have built that is likely to break (e.g like the straw house which could get blown down at any minute)

    • Wood: one thing which we have built which is fairly solid but could be improved (e.g like the stone house which would take more wind to blow down)

    • Brick: one thing which we have build and which is rock solid (e.g that can’t be blown down)

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
