Based on the infamous 1966 Western movie of the same name, this retrospective aims to facilitate discussions about processes, workflows, and habits.

What is this retrospective template all about?

"The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly" is a powerful and super simple retrospective idea designed to guide teams through a reflective process. 

Named after the iconic film, this template breaks down the retrospective into three essential components, allowing teams to dissect their recent Sprint, iteration or project.

🎥 About the movie

"The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly" is a classic spaghetti western film directed by Sergio Leone, released in 1966. Starring Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach, the movie is the third installment in Leone's "Dollars Trilogy."

How does "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" retrospective work?

The Good - What are the things that went well and that we'd like to repeat?

Reflect on the successes and achievements of the Sprint or iteration. What went well, and what made it successful? Think about positive practices and experiences, that we'd like to replicate in the future.

e.g., New feature rocked, team collaboration nailed it. Repeat this!

The Bad - What are the things we want to 'eliminate' moving forward?

Focus on the challenges and obstacles faced. What hindered progress or efficiency, which we should definitely get rid of? 

e.g., Tech glitches slowed us down—outdated software

The Ugly - What did not go as well as expected - but could be fixed and improved for next time?

Address the unexpected or unplanned issues that arose along the way. Use this section to identify and rectify issues, turning setbacks into opportunities for growth.

e.g., Miscommunication on features - not cool. Time to fix by boosting communication and documentation.

Passionate about design, I quickly understood that product development is a constant quest for continuous improvement. This is how I discovered retrospective and the ability to change things through action plans. I loved it so much that I co-founded Neatro. Feel free to contact me on LinkedIn, I always answer ;)
