A retrospective smell is a signal that something might be going wrong in your retrospective. It’s a warning that problems might happen that will impact the retrospective result.

The Agile Retrospective Smells Cards help you to recognize smells and act upon that by solving the problem or mitigating the impact.

This tool consists of 7 retrospective smell cards. Each card provides a description of the retrospective smell and a list of antidotes. Suitable for co-located and for distributed and remote teams.

These cards are an Agile Coaching Tool for Scrum masters, agile coaches, and anyone who facilitates agile retrospectives.

Retrospective smells are early warning signals. A retrospective anti-pattern describes the behavior that most likely follows if the smell is not properly recognized or dealt with. If you recognize smells and act promptly, it can make the difference between a failed and a successful retrospective. These cards help you to keep your agile retrospective meetings effective and valuable.

    It is great to come back from a Retro, sit down with this deck and do a little Retro of the Retro… going thru the 7 Cards allowed me to quickly spot the areas I could improve the teams experience. A nice return on the $10-spot – to feel confident in changes being considered.
