How to conduct this activity

How to use the plus delta template for your sprint retrospective This exercise is pretty simple, it is composable of only two columns that represent things that are going well (plus) and things that you want to change (delta). 1 - You can start by asking your team to brainstorm for 5 minutes on the things they want to add to the columns Plus and Delta. 2 - After that, you read all the cards and make sure everyone is on the same page regarding what those cards mean. You can also merge cards that are similar and have the same meaning, 3 - Next you can ask your team to vote on the top 3 cards they want to discuss, the top 3 cards presented on the delta column. 4 - After your team voted, you can discuss the most voted cards and brainstorm with your team how you can improve those topics and what action items you can create to fix the issues,
