Retrospective Activity of the Week

Story Oscars (#54)

The team nominates stories for awards and reflects on the winners

Display all stories completed in the last iterations on a board. Create 3 award categories (i.e. boxes on the board):

  • Best story
  • Most annoying story
  • ... 3rd category invented by the team ...Ask the team to 'nominate' stories by putting them in one of the award boxes.

For each category: Dot-vote and announce the winner. Ask the team why they think the user story won in this category and let the team reflect on the process of completing the tasks - what went good or wrong.

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