Mini/fast process retrospective
Quickly debrief a process or activity
- poster and market
Ideal conditions: end of session or portion of a session when the group will need to continue its work together
1. Draw a circle on a poster, divide it into 5 sections (pie slices) and write the words start, stop, continue, more of, less of around each section.
2. Ask: What should we start doing that perhaps we haven't done yet? What should we stop doing, that is not contributing or is getting in our way? What is working that we want to continue to do? What should we do more of? Less of?
3. Encourage comments in any category. Clarify what category the comment belongs in, and record the comment (or summary of it) on the poster.
Follow-Up Required: Adapt your process, working agreements (ground rules), deliverables based on the group's feedback
Usual or Expected Outcomes: Ideas and actions to improve the session; reinforcement and appreciation of what is working
Potential pitfalls: group may need a few minutes to start providing feedback. be patient. scan the group. be silent. invite participation by non-verbal interaction.
