The Better Value Sooner, Safer, Happier Retro

New Retrospective - The BVSSS Retro

The Retro creation binge shows no sign of stopping. Today's creation is inspired by the works of Jonathan Smarts best selling book, Better Value, Sooner, Safer, Happier.

Access the Miro & Image templates below, plug & play into your own instances and let us know how you get on!

Using the image template below, you can upload this retro format into Google Jamboards, Mural or other virtual whiteboards and overlay with your own post-its. No license? No problem.

Why use this retro?

- 𝗕𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗸 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗶𝗰𝗲: Share as a team with imagery or post-its just what Better Value, Sooner, Safer, Happier means to you.

𝙂𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙨𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩𝙨: Use the titular language & main themes from the book to generate insights as a team

- Better - How could we build better quality into our work?

- Sooner - How could we improve our pace sustainably?

- Happier - How could we make work more enjoyable for our team or improve our relationship with stakeholders?

Rate the retro: Inspect & Adapt the retro itself by rating how much value it brought you & the team using the fist of five scale. Retros themselves should also be subject to continuous improvement
