When you think of a retrospective, you most likely envision a group of people sitting around a conference room, discussing roadblocks, and mapping out ways to improve their processes. However, with the advancement of technology and the desire for flexible work schedules, more teams are working and collaborating in their own space and time zones.
With the new rollout of collaborative grouping launching last week (yay! 🎉), we thought this would be the perfect time to share an exciting new way to facilitate the grouping phase that levels the playing field for your team’s introverts.

Are you as a manager struggling to ignite the fire within the hearts and hands of your team?
Then it’s time for you to host a retrospective. Here’s why:
Our goal in regards to pricing has always been to align the price of Retrium with its value. We’ve been working closely with customers over the years to get to a sweet spot, a win-win for everyone. Based on overwhelming feedback, some time ago, we moved to activity-based pricing so that you would only be charged for team rooms in use, and last fall, we lowered the price of Retrium from $49 to $29 per active team room, per month.
Effective brainstorming is critical in a retrospective. It is the very first thing you do during your retrospectives and serves as the foundation for the discussions that follow. So it’s not unexpected that I’m regularly asked how to have more engaging and effective brainstorm sessions.
You're facilitating a retrospective. You're creating action items to ensure the team walks away with tasks to help us improve. But a simple question reveals there are different interpretations to the same discussion and action item. Sound familiar?
