Easter Egg Hunt Retrospective

Retrospective Format

Easter Egg Hunt

Discover hidden gems with this fun and engaging retrospective format, inspired by the classic Easter egg hunt. Uncover standout aspects, celebrate achievements, and explore new ideas while reflecting on your project's progress.

How to run this retro

Kick off the retrospective with a fun warm-up activity called "Easter Egg Hunt Keywords":

  1. Switch on Brainstorming mode to prevent participants from seeing each other's submissions.
  2. The facilitator will choose a project-related theme or topic for the Easter egg hunt (e.g. collaboration, communication, or new features).
  3. Invite participants to think of one, two, or three keywords related to the chosen theme or topic that they believe were "hidden gems" or standout aspects during the project. These keywords represent their "Easter eggs."
  4. Ask participants to submit their "Easter eggs" as separate cards in a designated column called "Easter Egg Hunt" along with their name.
  5. After everyone has submitted their keywords, switch off 'Brainstorming' mode to reveal all the "Easter eggs."
  6. Briefly discuss the revealed keywords as a team, reflecting on their significance and impact on the project.
