A step-by-step facilitation guide and templates for virtual delivery.


This is a facilitation guide for running a retrospective technique "Anti-Actions" with a Miro template.

The goal of this retrospective is to see if you perform any counter intuitive actions that might lead you to failure.

This follows along the retrospective techniques you can find in the Retrospective Poker cards and the Retrospectives: A Scrum Master's Guide book in a new easy-to-use format, recent updates, and includes templates for virtual delivery.


Why you should use it

This facilitation guide is a great addition to your Scrum Master's toolbox.

It gives you all the tools you need to run an awesome retrospective event with minimal preparation and little stress. Not only it makes your retrospective more fun and engaging, but it also focuses on improvements and action items. No more boring retrospectives that bring zero results!

And it is ready for remote facilitation with handy Miro templates.

It can also be a great way to help your team run their own retrospectives while you are on vacation, for example.


Who it is for

This technique will work great with a team that has been working together for a while and has already established good working norms and rapport.

It's a fun exercise with a serious twist based on the Liberating Structure TRIZ. It allows the team to really see any unwanted behaviors or actions they might be taking without realizing it while keeping the focus on the goals of the team.
