Timeline Retrospective

A Timeline Retrospective focuses on identifying the facts of the Sprint or project to find systemic issues contributing to the Team’s challenges and exploring adjustments in planning, estimation, execution practices, or interpersonal challenges.

  • Objective: To understand and address the root causes of missed deadlines.
  • Activity: Analyze the timeline of a project or sprint that missed its deadline. Identify the facts of what occurred “as if you were a camera recording your observations.” When did our challenges occur? When did we have something good happen? Then brainstorm solutions to improve what went poorly and recapture what went well.
