Retrospective Cookies (#27)

Take the team out to eat and spark discussion with retrospective fortune cookies
Source: Adam Weisbart
Invite the team out to eat, preferably Chinese if you want to stay in theme ;) Distribute fortune cookies and go around the table opening the cookies and discussing their content. Example 'fortunes':
  • What was the most effective thing you did this iteration, and why was it so successful?
  • Did the burndown reflect reality? Why or why not?
  • What do you contribute to the development community in your company? What could you contribute?
  • What was our Team's biggest impediment this iteration?
You can order retrospective cookies from Weisbart or bake your own, e.g. if English is not the team's native language.
