The Harry Potter Retro

Alright, after this optional check-in (it should not take longer than 5-10% of your retrospective time), these are the main questions for your retrospective:

  • What is our "firebolt" (Harry's broom), that helps us achieve our goals? (optional explanation: For example, helpful tools, skills, or routines.)
  • What surprising message did messenger owl Hedwig have in her package for us? (optional explanation: Surprising news or twist from the last weeks.)
  • Based on your work, what would you see when you look into the Mirror of Erised? The mirror shows your heartfelt wish.
  • Which recent memories would you like to save in a Pensieve to relive later? (optional explanation: Moments or things you would like to remember.)
