April Fool's Retrospective

Celebrate the humour and the light-hearted moments in your team's journey with an April Fool's retrospective. As a way to keep things fun and engaging, this format brings laughter and joy to the discussion while still focusing on important topics such as successes, challenges, and team member recognition.

Warm up

Begin the retrospective with a game of "Two Truths and a Lie". Ask each participant to privately think of two true statements and one false statement about themselves or their work. Then, have everyone share their statements (without revealing which one is the lie), and let the team members take turns guessing which statement is false.

Once everyone has shared and the correct answers have been revealed, proceed to the main activities of the retrospective.

๐ŸŽญ Truths & Lies

During the retrospective, create a board section dedicated to sharing and discussing the game of Two Truths and a Lie played during the warm-up.
