Sprint Retrospective Template
Learn more from your sprints
Retrospectives can be haphazard and poorly organized, leading to teams duplicating work or recreating problems in future sprints. Teams can even be hesitant to schedule retrospectives if they don’t have an easy process for completing them.
- Retrospective feedback can be missed or lost, making it difficult to adjust associated processes
- Action items can be lost in team members’ to-do lists, creating further problems in future sprints
- Teams can feel overwhelmed if priorities can’t be easily outlined following feedback sessions
Eliminate these obstacles with Wrike’s sprint retrospective template.
- Ensure teams understand the ground rules that keep retrospectives on track
- Easily create individual retrospective boards to share with the broader team as needed
- Quickly assign tasks and priorities based on retrospective results
Why you need this template

Organize information from all team members in a single place and ensure everyone is on the same page before the next project starts.
Systems aren’t updated
Ensure process adjustments are prioritized with a drag-and-drop board view so your team doesn’t repeat the same problems in the next sprint or project.
Remote workers aren’t included
Include all team members, remote and in-office, with an online collaborative workspace. Maximize your sprint retrospectives by ensuring everyone is included in the process.

Are your retrospectives failing to achieve better results? Is your team struggling to produce actionable insights?
Streamline your post-sprint process with Wrike’s sprint retrospective template. This template is the tool you need to ensure your retrospectives produce results that positively impact future sprints.

As a project manager or Scrum master, you want your team to be as effective, efficient, and successful as possible. Haphazard or disjointed retrospectives won’t help your team deliver better results or avoid common roadblocks in the future.
That’s why you need Wrike’s Sprint retrospective template that includes customizable board views for individuals and teams to organize retrospective feedback and turn it into actionable tasks.
When a project manager is ready to start a retrospective, they simply use the sprint retrospective template to automatically set up boards. These will then help team members capture the right info, categorize it, and filter it depending on what information they need.
The project manager can use the sprint retrospective template as a guide to the next three steps.
Step 1: Ensure team members understand goals
Wrike’s sprint retrospective template automatically creates a task with goals and ground rules for sprint retrospectives, which can help all team members get on the same page before you start a retrospective. This information will also save project managers time by informing new team members about expectations.
Step 2: Set up individual and team boards
With Wrike’s sprint retrospective template, project managers or scrum masters can quickly set up individual boards, where team members can offer their own positive or constructive feedback. They’ll also be able to set up a team retrospective board where all feedback can be collected.
Step 3: Prioritize and assign action items
Finally, Wrike’s sprint retrospective template will automatically set up a board to view action items, and the project manager or Scrum master can drag and drop tasks in based on priority, assign accountability to individuals, and keep an eye on their status going forward.
