A simple retrospective that focuses on the successes and shortcomings of a topic or activity.
Assessing a recent activity
Retrospectives are a key part of Agile software development, providing a forum for teams to reflect on their work and identify areas for improvement. The Worked Well, Kinda-Worked, Didn't Work format is a simple yet effective structure for a retrospective.
This format encourages honest and direct assessment of a recent activity. Worked well and didn't work are straight-forward for teams to add their points to, while the Kinda Worked section provides the necessary ambiguity for more nuanced points.
