Importance of a team retrospective meeting

The point of a retrospective meeting is to enable change. It is reserved time to discuss success, failure and future improvements after the completion of each process. Iterative learning helps you to identify critical issues and ways to eliminate them. These meetings enable teams to make small improvements regularly and apply them in a controlled manner.

The Retrospective Meeting Service is a specialised Virsas tool for teams who are trying to improve processes and work together as a better team.

Goals of a retrospective meeting

• Identify and resolve the conflict areas

• Improve processes

• Allow members to share their views

• Fix the priorities and directions

• Create transparency and build trust

Team management

There are two ways to create a team. One is from the main page of the retrospective meeting. The second one is from the team management page located at the top right corner. You can create as many teams as you wish with any number of members. This way, you can improve the processes of any group of employees within your organization.

Access of team members

Members of a team can access, manage and read the boards of the group. Only an administrator can add or remove team members. The read and write access is based on the role assigned to each user and can be found in the user list.

Creating a retrospective meeting board

Within each team, you can create any number of boards. Each board should get a name, description and max number of votes each team member can use to vote on board items. Also, you have to choose one of the templates of the retrospective meeting. Virsas provides you with a couple of defaults ones: Stop; Start; Continue, 4Ls, Party, Health and many more. However, you can create your templates too.

Votes and actions

After you create a board, you should allow each team member to add any number of items on the board. They should add what they liked, disliked and what they would like to see in the future. When everyone shared their opinions, each team member should read out the board and vote on items they think are the most important. Each member has by default five votes, and they can vote on any topic as many times they want as long as the total number of given votes is equal to the number of available votes. The most proposed items should then be discussed in a quick meeting session. You should not spend more than 5 minutes per topic. After the discussion, an action should be described in the comment section.
