A Retrospective Board is used as a tool to facilitate and conduct a Retrospective at the end of Sprint.

A most basic format of a Retrospective Board will involve:

What went well

The successes of the work and how problems were successfully solved.

What is to be improved

What problems or challenges were faced and how they may not have been solved.

Action items

Identifying the most helpful and impactful changes to improve effectiveness. These may be even added to the next Sprint as something to work on.
