1. Create a team in Saberr

If you haven't already done so, go to the Teams tab to create a new team.

2. Add a retrospective

Click on add meeting and select the Team Retrospective

3. Connect your calendar

Do you already have the meeting scheduled in you calendar (Google Calendar, or Office 365) for retrospectives? If so, all you need to do is link Saberr to that meeting.

Click Connect to Calendar Event and find the right meeting. Saberr will try to find the best matching events for you, based on who is invited.

This will set up reminders for everybody to leave retrospective notes in advance of your sessions.

4. Leave retro notes anytime

Anybody in the team can leave retro notes, any time, by visiting the team in Saberr. They'll also be reminded to reflect on the team's performance and to leave retro notes before the day before the retrospectives takes place.

It just takes a minute to leave a retro note!

5. In the retrospective

In your retrospective meeting, make sure everyone can see your screen and click on Start Retro. (Only one person should launch the retrospective, presumably the team leader but someone else can do it in their absence.)

If there aren't many notes, Saberr will ask whether you want to leave some more notes right then. Follow the link and the code on the screen to do so.

Saberr will guide you through discussing the notes, on the shared screen. The important thing is to discuss people's contributions and to share learning with each other. Each note's author should read it out, and Saberr will suggest how to discuss each one.

You can make actions to followup on as you go, if needed.

"Quickstart" option, with no preparation needed

If you don't want to schedule a regular retrospective, or gather retro notes before the meeting, you can still launch a quick retrospective anytime.

  • Get the team together
  • Team leader: Log in to Saberr, make sure everyone can see your screen and select The Retrospective Session from the Library. (Only one person should launch the session, presumably the team leader but someone else can do it in their absence.)
  • Everybody will use their own device to leave short retro notes then and there. There is plenty of guidance for anybody new to it who might not know what to write.
  • Once everybody has left their notes, Saberr will guide you through discussing them, on the shared screen.
