Guide and Best Practices

The sprint retrospective is a meeting facilitated by the Scrum Master to discuss the results of the just-concluded Scrum. Here the Scrum team will analyze what went wrong and decide what should be changed to make the next Scrum more productive.

How to carry out a sprint retrospective

  • Gather your Scrum team together and have your Sprint retrospective template for the start, stop, continue exercise ready. You can start right away with one of Creately’s retrospective templates.
  • Discuss what everyone feels about the concluded sprint. Encourage the team members to be inclined toward improving the process rather than blaming others.
  • Start by asking everyone to write what they think they should start next. These could be actions that need to be taken to improve the process.
  • Then move on to the next category where the team needs to list down things that are making the process inefficient or wasting time and resources.
  • Add what the team thinks they should continue to do during the next sprint in the third category.
  • Once they are done writing, allow them to organize what they’ve written on the board. Those who are working remotely can also join the session with Creately’s real-time collaboration feature. Changes anyone makes will be reflected immediately on the canvas.
  • When everyone is done, discuss each item on the start-stop-continue board. Then set up a vote to decide which items on the board are more important.
  • Select the top three items based on the votes and prioritize them during the next sprint. Share the board with other stakeholders and get their instant feedback with comments and discussion threads.
