Two Truths and a Lie Retrospective

  1. Ask the team to think back about the last Sprint and to take five minutes to write three statements about it, of which, two will be true and one will be a lie.
  2. After time is over, suggest to a first person to announce his 2 truths and 1 lie in any order; the others in the group will have to find the right answer.
  3. Move onto the next team member and continue until everyone has revealed their statements.
  4. Group any related Truths and Lies with a “must improve” connotation and discuss as one team.
  5. Each person votes, editing their choice adding “+1”. They can put all their votes on one group of items or on different ones.
  6. The top three areas are carried for brainstrorming.
  7. After a Braistorming session, define actions for improvements you want to make (use a model as a support for example S.M.A.R.T., Acceptance criteria or Definition of Done).
  8. Vote on the most important actions to take forward for next sprint.
