4Ls Retrospective: Liked, Lacked, Learned, Longed For


Why do this workshop?
A popular retrospective template. This format gives people an opportunity to express themselves through a range of categories.

How to run this workshop?
Time needed: 60 minutes 
Run this exercise similarly to most retrospectives:

  1. Ideate - ask people to write their sticky notes for each category - 10 minutes
  2. Share and present their points - 20 minutes
  3. Identify patterns and group similar sticky notes - 10 minutes
  4. Vote on the most important issues - 5 minutes
  5. As a team, decide what actions to take for the top 3 voted issues. - 15 minutes

Tip: start this retro with a tongue-twisting Ice Breaker - get everyone to say the categories as quickly as they can four times: "Liked-Lacked-Learned-Longed For!"

Metro Retro
 Metro Retro is a free web app that helps teams run productive, engaging and fun retrospectives. 

It uses real-time updates, adaptable templates and a quirky sense of humour to help you run the best possible retros!

It is great for distributed teams where a face to face retrospective is not possible. It is also great for co-located teams for shorter meetings, less wasted paper and always available history of your retros.
