Retro theme number 37 for 2021; Top Gun


I was inspired this week to create a Top Gun retrospective. My inspiration came from a regular agile anti-pattern, the misunderstanding that agile = speed. You can all imagine the cogs turning in my mind as I heard this repetitive focus on going faster, that need for speed, and thus the Top Gun retro was born!

Why use this retro?

- Break the ice: Create your own team 'Call signs'. Are you more an Iceman, a Goose or a Maverick?


๐™‚๐™š๐™ฃ๐™š๐™ง๐™–๐™ฉ๐™š ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™จ๐™ž๐™œ๐™๐™ฉ๐™จ: Use quotes from the movie to gather insights & identify how the team can improve. "You've lost that loving feeling" - Where has the team fallen out of love with something? "Highway to the danger zone" - What danger lies ahead in a future iteration? Or find out where the team is overcommitting and their ego writing checks they can't cash!


๐˜ฟ๐™ค๐™ฉ ๐™‘๐™ค๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ: Create your own thematic dot votes & prioritise those insights, before creating actions / experiments that the team can try next!
