journey based on an effective retrospective methodology focused on team feedback

journey based on the 4L retrospective methodology proposed by Mary Gorman and Ellen Gottesdiener

what it is

journey based on a simple and effective retrospective methodology of project cycles, focused on feedback from teams based on the 4 Ls: liked, learned, lacked and longed for.

who invented

the 4L retrospective was first published in 2010 by Mary Gorman and Ellen Gottesdiener.

why to use

the journey based on the 4L methodology is a focused and effective retrospective tool in highlighting opportunities for evolution, generating process improvements and ensuring that a team moves in the desired direction.

when to use

the 4Ls methodology is generally indicated for scrum masters and their team, in sprint retrospective processes. with a less conventional but quite simple approach, it allows the identification of positive aspects (liked and learned) as well as negative aspects (lacked and desired) in the project cycles, both from a factual and more objective feedback, as well as from a more emotional perspective. .

how to use

the retrospective journey based on the 4Ls methodology has four points of divergence that must be applied with the team to define each of the topics proposed by Mary Gorman and Ellen Gottesdiener in their original method. for each topic, we put together a divergence kit at strateegia.digital with questions to help the team collaboratively define the decisions necessary for the project.

the steps

each block of Mary Gorman and Ellen Gottesdiener’s original method was converted into a divergence kit, generating the four kits in the list below:

  • we liked
  • we learned
  • we lacked 
  • longed for
