Off/On shore retrospective tool

Question :thinking:

What tool (if any) does your company use for running retro’s specifically if your team is co/on/off-shore located?

Previously all our team was co-located so it was a white board.

Any thoughts? I was looking at this one goReflect

We have found Trello really useful.

John Barratt did a talk on Retrospectives for distributed teams at Agile Cambridge which had lots of useful ideas:

thanks @mark_coulson01 will definitely look into Trello

Cheers K has a free option and is nicely flexible and can be worked on by multiple people at the same time, has voting and things like that. Really nice tool that we use with our partly remote team

thanks Gem will totally look into it :+1:

Hope things are going awesome for you

Hi Kimberley,

We’ve developed as a visual and highly flexible collaborative document format. experiences a great success from tech professionals seeking to run remote retrospectives because they can easily create, import, or use a wide range of templates. In addition to that, any post-it can be “votable” if needed.

Hope it helps!

Cool question, @kimberley!

We use Skype for Business or WebEx. In one project, we were able to use a web camera (one that provided a good picture to the receiving team members) during our stand ups.

I suspect we will soon be experimenting with Team Foundation Server for sharing a white board.


This conversation popped up on Slack this week so some perhaps newer tools suggested:
