The following sequence was used on a Sprint retrospective for a small team (5 people). It took less than one hour.
Activity 1: happiness radar
Based on the result of the happiness radar, I decided to focus the remaining of the retrospective on the areas with lower happiness. The post it colors were selected for each of the two identified areas (yellow for technology; gray for process)
Activity 2: small starfish
I did create the small starfish canvas (next to the happiness radar); I draw an arrow pointing to it and wrote the following sentence:
What will increase it?
Activity 3: Group conversation and note taking
