Retrospectives

Retrospective template overview

Use this retrospective meeting template to reflect on your sprints, identify things your team can do better, and move forward with action items you set.

  • Provide dedicated time to reflect on the past, spot mistakes, and model the future. 🛸

  • Increase transparency and empower teams to find solutions.

  • Don’t just talk — document action items and track their progress.

Ok, I’m ready to review my past sprint

What can the Retrospective template do?

Make a room for feedback, analysis, and growth.

Use this template to ask direct questions about the previous sprint: what was good and what was bad, capture ideas and actions from the team, and track execution of the action items.

Capture Retrospectives results and keep track of Retrospectives history. Process history helps to model future projects and spot mistakes.

Reflect and brainstorm

Schedule a Retrospective meeting, and do a project or sprint review. Identify the things the team feels they are doing well and should continue to do, things that can be improved in the next iteration, all the lessons learned and takeaways, and ideas for the future.

✍🏼 Write brief (or not) answers to 3 essential questions (aka universal retrospective meeting agenda):

  • What went right?

  • What went wrong?

  • What did we learn?

Feel like the ideas are sparking? Create a Whiteboard anytime and link it to the Retrospective.

Create an action plan

It's all just begins after the talking part. Once you answer the 3 questions above, think of the next actions and create some action items right from the Retrospectives entity. Add description, assignees, and due date.

Track progress

Use an Action Items board to track actions execution. It’s now as simple as Open -> In progress -> Done, but you can customize it as you want.

Want to better visualize the progress? Create a custom report.

Who is this template for?

For all those who do something, from sprints to projects to marketing campaigns, and want to analyze their efforts and results to improve the future ones. 💡

Retrospectives are best known as a tool for agile teams. However, we haven’t limited the template to this use case, and think each scrum team, project team, and any other team will benefit from it.

How to use the Fibery Retrospective template?

From the start, you have just two different Databases: Retrospective, and Action Item.

These Databases can be visualized as you want. We thought of some things in advance and set up several views for you: Latest Retrospectives, Action Items board, and table for Archive Retrospectives.

Here is how you can make the most of it in several steps:

  1. Add a new Retrospective from the Latests Retrospectives smart folder, and schedule a retrospective meeting.

  2. Invite your entire team to the company workspace to collaborate together in real-time (perfect in case you are having a remote retrospective). Answer the questions with your team, and document them in the Retrospective.

  3. Create a list of action items, assign people and track the progress on a simple Kanban board.

  4. Customize the template to fit your needs. Create a progress report, add a calendar view to never miss an upcoming Retrospective, or add a relation between Retrospective and Team Databases (thus you will be able to track retrospectives for different teams).
