What Is Start, Stop and Continue?

Start, stop, continue is a simple yet effective retrospective template to conduct a retrospective session which allows you to obtain peer and leadership feedback, and review factors that contributed to the success of a sprint and areas that need to be improved.

Start: Actions or practices which the team should adopt in the next cycle.

Stop: Actions that the team should stop doing as they have a negative impact on the sprint cycle.

Continue: Actions that turned out to be effective during the previous sprint and therefore should be continued in the next.

How to Use a Start, Stop and Continue Template?

  • Firstly, conduct a brainstorming session on Creately together with the team to review the previous sprint cycle and evaluate current activities. You can use a mind map for this purpose. Get the team to share their feedback on the actions that worked, didn’t work and practices that should be continued.
  • Use Creately’s color themes and shape styling to group similar ideas together and differentiate the actions that should be started, stopped and continued.
  • Use the same workspace to get your team members to vote for the most effective actions.
  • Connect with your team on a video call on Creately to review and discuss the sprint tasks and come up with solutions for the problems faced during the sprint.
