Small starfish is a adaptation of the starfish retrospective activity. The Small starfish canvas is split into 3 areas instead of 5. Starfish is a great data gathering activity to foster the thinking around practices and the value the team get from it. It helps team members to understand each other perceived value on such practices.
The small starfish divides the board into 3 areas:
- Keep Doing – something the team is doing well and you recognize the value on it.
- Less / Stop – something being done; you see some value, but you rather reduce; either a little bit or all of it.
- More Of – something already being done; and you believe will bring more value if done even more.
