Retrospectives are critical for Continuous Improvement! It’s the best way to hear from your people doing the job. For a retrospective to be effective, one needs an open, free, safe environment to express and share their opinions.
NimbleRetro allows you to conduct your Retrospectives online in a participative, collaborative and time bound manner and uses the 5-Why method to identify the Root Cause for selected problem statements and generate an Action Item.
NimbleRetro allows the facilitator to start the Retrospective with an Icebreaker. It helps to engage all participants in the retrospection process. It also leads you to the ideation stage where every participant can share their point of view on (say, depending on the template) what is working well, or can be improved.
The next stage allows the facilitator to group the duplicates and converge. The grouped cards along with the other cards are then put up to vote on what is important to them anonymously. NimbleRetro calls this the voting stage.
All stages are time bound so to ensure that the bulk of the time is not consumed in the initial stages of the Retrospective process. Of course, you can set the time you feel appropriate for the team. Most retrospectives find themselves challenged to allocate enough time to do a full Root Cause Analysis.
