- Break the ice by working as a team to create the classic Austin Powers peace symbol

- Explore as a team with some of the classic film quotes. What's "Groovy baby" - Where is the team in the groove? "No.. dangers my middle name!" - Where is the team living dangerously?, "Why won't you die?!" - What the team are having trouble finishing and how they could approach it differently

- Invite your team to rate their own retro using a fist of five (Sharks with frickin laser beams!) Retros themselves shouldn't be omitted from continuous improvement!

- It's an excuse to play the ever so catchy Austin powers theme during a meeting

Let me know what your team thought of this retro. I love hearing stories about how they go down.

As always, you can download this, alongside 40+ other retro templates here;
