Final Discussion

Conclusion

It also fomented individual 1-on-1 discussion, potentially raising awareness of each other and improving team building, especially with new team members. Contrasted with previous open-talk retrospectives, we were able to stay focused and on target, unexpectedly arriving at a single consensus.
