The WWW is a great data gathering activity for retrospectives. The 3 Ws stand for: Worked well, kinda Worked, didn’t Work.

Running the activity:
  1. Split the canvas into 3 areas:
  • Worked well – things that worked really well
  • kinda Worked – things that kinda worked, but you rather tweak it a little bit
  • didn’t Work – things that did not work


  •  Ask the participants for their notes.
  • Affinity grouping and group conversation


Below is a photo from a retrospective canvas with this activity.
I have learned this activity from my friend and co-worker Rafael Ferreira, on a project postmortem retrospective.
