In the era of remote teams, tools for enhancing interaction and feedback become key. Surveys during online retrospectives are a powerful tool for gathering team opinions and preferences, as well as for decision-making.
When Are Surveys Particularly Useful?
- Gathering Feedback: Surveys help to learn the opinion of every team member about the past sprint or project.
- Decision Making: From "Shall we go to the bar after the retro?" to "What work methods should we change?" - surveys contribute to a democratic choice.
- Assessing Team Mood: Understanding the general mood of the team helps to improve the working atmosphere.
Anonymity is a key aspect that allows team members to speak frankly without fear of being misunderstood. This fosters a more honest and open exchange of opinions.
Surveys in online retrospectives are not only a tool for improving the workflow but also a way to strengthen team spirit. Integrated into services like ProstoRetro, they make remote work more effective and engaging.
