Sprint Retro

We like to keep our retros fresh and have cycled through a set of different styles. We track all of our retros in a google doc Fundraising Sprint retro notes which resides in the 'FR-tech things' google drive folder. The quickest way is to copy a previous entry and clear out the bullet points that were used. This keeps the formating with minimal effort. When using a Miro board, make sure to include te share link in the retro entry.

Additionally, it is good to keep notes of what we wish to carry on or improve for the next or upcoming sprints. They should be kept with each individual sprint and reviewed every few months for discussion.
