The Retrospective Lexicon by Paul Goddard


Invented by Paul Goddard, The Retrospective Lexicon® is a game that can add some variety to your retrospectives.

These cards can broaden and deepen your retrospective discussions by introducing some new and alternative vocabulary.

You may find these cards take the conversation in a completely different direction!

  • Each pack contains 57 cards
  • Each card describes ADJECTIVES, EMOTIONS and ACTIONS which can help structure a retrospective discussion
  • Cards are aimed at exploring and enhancing the emotional intelligence and empathy of retrospective attendees
  • A great way to increase participation and widen the vocabulary used in your team retrospectives

Paul told us more about how the cards worked in his session at our Agile Games Workshop.
