Retrospective Activity of the Week

Speedboat / Sailboat (#19)

Analyze what forces push you forward and what pulls you back

Draw a speedboat onto a flip chart paper. Give it a strong motor as well as a heavy anchor. Team members silently write on sticky notes what propelled the team forward and what kept it in place. One idea per note. Post the stickies motor and anchor respectively. Read out each one and discuss how you can increase 'motors' and cut 'anchors'. 

Variation: Some people add an iceberg in the back of the image. The iceberg represents obstacles they already see coming.

That's all folks! Have a great week, and remember to pass this on to anyone who might gain from the read.
