The Big List of Retrospective Tools

After 8 years and 14,172 retrospectives, we’ve decided to sunset our retrospective tool, Sensei.  Many thanks to our 23,859 users over the years!


For our recommended Sensei alternative, check out Retrium.

Our Agile friends at Retrium have built a powerful retrospective solution, with easy access to popular facilitation techniques like Start-Stop-Continue, Team Radar, Lean Coffee™, and many more. Each of these techniques includes private brainstorming to help people feel safe speaking up, dot voting to prioritize your discussion topics, and action plans to track your team’s progress.
