The Our Everest Futurespective

New Retrospective - Our Everest - What represents Everest for your team?

Whilst writing plays for upcoming book relating to futurespection, I was inspired to create a new futurespective.

Retro number #85 in my collection is therefore the 'Our Everest' futurespective.

To browse my full back catalogue of retro templates categorised by theme, click here;

Use this short futurespective to identify a key problem the team is trying to solve or an outcome it's trying to reach and work backwards to plan an itinerary for how the team will get there.

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

Why use this retro?

Break the ice; Invite the team to share their personal Everest, a goal or outcome they are chasing

𝙂𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙨𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩𝙨: Use some mountain climbing metaphors to generate insights.

- Climbing equipment - What support or resources do we need to climb our Everest?

What skills will we need to acquire?

- Pain Avalanche - What will cause us pain as a team?

What may stop us from climbing our Everest?

- Climbing itinerary - What actions are we adding to our itinerary?

How will we commit to our success?

Return on time invested: Rating as a team what value the futurespective brought using a return on time invested scale. Futurespectives themselves should also be subject to continuous improvement
