Refresh your retrospectives - a tool created by Laurence Wood

Refresh your retrospectives - a tool created by Laurence Wood

In the dynamic world of project and engineering teams, the journey towards getting better is full of hurdles. Despite how important looking back and learning is for growth, teams often face obstacles that make it tough to do effective reviews.

One big issue is that excitement for reflecting on what's been learnt tends to fade over time. What started as a promising way to keep improving can end up feeling like just another thing to check off the list. Teams get so caught up in their day-to-day tasks and deadlines that they forget how valuable it is to stop and think about what's working and what isn't.

Plus, the usual way teams do reviews often isn't enough for the challenges teams face today. As projects get bigger and more complicated, so do the problems that pop up. Teams can feel like they're drowning in all the things they need to fix, which makes it hard to make any real progress.

That's where Richer Retrospectives comes in. Created by Laurence Wood, it's not just a set of cards—it's a way to really shake things up and make a difference.

At its heart, Richer Retrospectives is all about focusing on what matters most. Instead of trying to tackle everything at once, it helps teams zoom in on specific behaviors or patterns that need attention. By digging deep into the root causes of their problems, teams can figure out how to move forward.

Using cards might seem simple, but it's actually pretty smart. It makes continuous improvement feel more manageable and less overwhelming. Each card covers a different aspect of how teams work together, sparking conversations that uncover important insights and chances to grow.

But Richer Retrospectives isn't just about the cards—it's also about how teams work together. It's about making sure everyone knows why they're doing what they're doing, who they're doing it for, and what they hope to achieve. With that clarity, facilitators can lead teams to continuously improving with confidence, making sure every retro leads to real change.

So, if your team is struggling to get better, Richer Retrospectives could be just what you need. It's a way to tackle common problems head-on and have structured discussions that lead to real improvements.
