A Canadian retrospective, really?

The unity of your team is all that matters. How about giving your team a breath of fresh air for your next retrospective?

This activity format imagined by the Neatro team will give you a little taste of the Canadian way of life. 🍁

Together, go through the highlights of your last iteration. Review both the successes and the challenges you have encountered along the way. Then share a few sweet words with the team - try to be as kind as Canadian people are!

❄️ Put on your hiking shoes, and make sure to review the rules of hockey. Here we go, off to Celine Dion's land!

Yes, this retrospective activity is full of stereotypes and cheesy references about Canada and Canadian people. Is it because Neatro is a Canadian product? Well... maybe ;)

Why & when should you use this retrospective template?

From Canada, with love, is a perfect ally for any Sprint Retrospective. Furthermore, this retrospective model is way more than just a "feel-good" team activity.

The wide variety of questions raised in this retrospective technique will help you - as the retrospective facilitator - make a general team assessment. Then, add a twist of kindness through "kudos" given by team members at the end of the activity.

Since your team will go through no fewer than five core questions, make sure to book enough time to let your teammates reflect on past events. You don't want to waste the chance for your team to become stronger tomorrow just because not everyone had the opportunity to participate adequately, right? ;)
