This short video demonstrates how to run the Treasure Island retrospective, which we devised and ran for one of our Scrum teams. We’re really chuffed with the response to this retro: the video has had over 30,000 views so far.
It uses the 5 stages of a retrospective described by Esther Derby and Diana Larsen in their book Agile Retrospectives. These are:
Setting the Stage
Deciding What to Do
It asks the team to go in search of their treasure on Treasure Island, using their strengths to overcome any obstacles they might find on the way. We hope you enjoy and thanks for reading/watching.
If you use the Treasure Island retrospective, we’d love to hear your experiences or any other thoughts you’d like to share with us about this retro.
