    What is a Sailboat Retrospective?

    What is a Sailboat Retrospective?

    The sailboat retrospective compares the sprint to a sailboat, getting the team to compare the things that affected the sprint to what propels a sailboat forward or backwards.

    • Sunshine – things that made the team happy
    • Anchors – things that held the team back from making progress
    • Wind and clouds – the things that helped the team propel forward
    • Rocks and pirates – risks and obstacles that may prevent the team from where they need to be.

    How to Run a Sailboat Retrospective?

    1. Create a workspace with a sailboat retrospective template

    Open a Creately sailboat retrospective template and add all key stakeholders to the workspace to start collaborating on visualizing a sprint’s obstacles, risks, and ultimate goals.

    1. Collaborate with remote employees

    Connect with remote employees using Microsoft Teams for Creately and before starting the session, set some ground rules clarifying how you envision your retrospective going.

    1. Start adding items to the template

    As the team brainstorms, add the relevant items in the relevant section of the picture template for the sailboat retrospective highlighting what’s going well, what’s holding them back, etc.

    1. Identify what worked well

    Once all the ideas have been collected, review and identify what the biggest successes of your project were and what attributes you’d like to carry forward.

    1. Create an action plan

    Discuss your anchors (obstacles) and brainstorm ways to overcome them. Using a Creately action plan template, outline your plan to sail forward.
