I tried out Appreciative Retrospective today and was quite happy with the results.
I did call it the positive retrospective since the focus was on being positive.
Its a really good way of focusing on the positive parts. I thought it would be a disaster (specially in the team I was doing it in) but it went better than I had ever hoped for.
People tend to focus on the negatives. Not because they are negative…it’s just simpler to fix the “bad” things than empower the good things 😉
