Retrospective Activities

Lean Coffee (#51)

Use the Lean Coffee format for a focused discussion of the top topics 

Say how much time you set aside for this phase, then explain the rules of Lean Coffee for retrospectives:

  • Everyone writes down topics they’d like to discuss - 1 topic per sticky
  • Put the stickies up on a whiteboard or flipchart. The person who wrote it describes the topic in 1 or 2 sentences. Group stickies that are about the same topic
  • Everyone dot-votes for the 2 topics they want to discuss
  • Order the stickies according to votes
  • Start with the topic of highest interest
  • Set a timer for 5 minutes. When the timer beeps, everyone gives a quick thumbs up or down. Majority of thumbs up: The topic gets another 5 minutes. Majority of thumbs down: Start the next topic.

Stop when the allotted time is over.

That's it! Have a great week
