The Zombie Apocalypse: Halloween Retrospective Format
What is this Halloween retrospective template all about?
On Halloween night, something terrible happens... The end of the world has come!!!
Well, not exactly. It's just a zombie invasion, and it should be contained to your team retrospective only. Phew.
Still, the mission looks very difficult. In fact, your only chance of getting out of this is to cooperate and fight as a united group. Will your team survive it?
What's the nice twist about this adventure?
Like any great warrior, each participant will have to enumerate and discuss lessons learned from the last iteration to become stronger. Then team members will raise ideas to strengthen the group for the next raid (or the next Sprint, or iteration - you got the idea, right?).
Let the resistance shine! 🧟
5 core questions for a great Halloween retrospective
Why & when should you use this Halloween retrospective idea?
This Sprint retrospective format will bring a good dose of originality to your next team meeting. Joining forces as a team to fight hordes of zombies doesn't happen every day, right?
Used as a Sprint retrospective activity, the Zombie Apocalypse will help you make a general diagnosis of your last work cycle. See by yourself! 👇
The team will first be able to identify the challenges encountered along the way.
Then participants will take stock of the tools and processes that have made their life easier.
Next, the team members will state why and how some things did not happen as initially planned.
Then there will be a sequence where the survivors - well, we mean, the participants - share the lessons learned from the last iteration. Finally, each member will suggest ideas to strengthen the group dynamic.
Use this Sprint retrospective idea as Halloween approaches... or anytime you feel you're ready for this adventure.
Because there's only one guanrantee: you won't make it if you're not strong enough. 💀
