Sailboat Retrospective

Sailboat Retrospective

A fun retrospective where you imagine your team as a sailboat and ask where are you going, what’s helping you get there, what’s holding you back, and what risks are there?

With a Sailboard retrospective, your team brainstorms their on feedback onto sticky notes in four categories:

  • Destination - where does your team want to be & what’s your vision?
  • Wind - what’s helping your team move in the direction of your destination?
  • Anchor - what’s holding the team back?
  • Rocks/Iceberg - what are some risks that you might encounter?
Check out our Guide to Retrospectives for a comprehensive overview of why and how to run a successful retrospective.
