End of the year retroEnd of year Team Retro focused with holiday themes- So, if you could summarise your sprint in a single inspirational quote, what would it be?- What are some cool presents you received during this sprint? 🎁 Things that went well, cool features you’re proud of,- What are some presents that were… unexpected? 😕 Things that were less fun, or took longer that you wanted,- Your great aunt just gave you an envelope full of cash, what are you going to spend this money on during next sprint? 💌 Exciting things that are coming up!- Uh-oh, there’s a cat waiting to jump on your beautiful Xmas lights! 😼 What are some bad things that could happen during next sprint?- Now that you’ve seen what the previous sprint is made of, write a letter to Santa, expressing a wish. Santa can fix any problem, so what do you wish for? The next morning, your wish is granted! How can you tell? What’s different?- Write a Kudo card to someone picked randomly in your team!- New Year’s Resolution After Christmas, New Year’s Eve is the next big thing! Close your retrospective by asking yourselves: think about this year for a bit, and decide 3 personal actions for next year (what should you start doing, continue doing, and stop doing?)
