For agile developers who reflect at regular intervals on how to improve their processes, this app provides a set of discussion tools that can be used to brainstorm and energize their retrospective meetings.

Features:

  • Touch based whiteboard and sticky notes
  • Timeline – a visual overview of the events that occurred in the retrospective period
  • Radar – helps the team to gather data on how well they are doing on a variety of measures
  • Leaning Matrix – used to to find out what is significant about the data and generate insights on what should be repeated, changed, tried as well as to congratulate team members on a job well done
  • Short Subjects – used when a quick way to review and decide what to do is needed
  • Starfish – used to reflect on various degrees of things to bring up to discussion
  • Positive / Delta – discuss things to keep and change in the next retrospective
  • Twitter and email sharing

    I think it is a good way to normalize results of retrospectives and then it may be easier to compare from time to time these results and analyze improvement results.
    I would like to check if it would be easy to publish the results of the retro on our team wiki, but emailing is already a good thing ;o)

    I would not use it as much during the actual retrospective to record as a facilitator.
    However, I could see myself using it to refer to artifacts of previous retrospectives. Certainly the timelines.

    I would use it to store and track retrospective action items and history.

    I think it is a different approach to capture and document the outcomes of the retro. To often the retro happens, notes are taken, these are then added to a wiki page or blend into the wall these have been stuck on. This highly visual approach is a nice way to capture the info.
