My last couple went great. I did the Nirvana Retro and the Catapult retro. The catapult felt a little forced, but the nirvana retro sparked some amazing discussions. I still haven’t taken dow the results from the walls.
I asked teams to tell me what there coding nirvana was. They grabbed stickies and started throwing them on the board. When they had basically filled the board. We started going through them and talking about what they meant to each person.
Each team member then distilled it down into their own personal Nirvana.
Mine was this one.
But truthfully, I thought the other one was so profound. I’ve left it on the wall.
I followed this up with the catapult retro. If you are interested, I can post it.
I loved this retro. We have some really open and heartfelt conversation. We are now trying to reach this coding zen
