Starfish

> Summarize

Each participant says their piece about the period gone by, talking about what went relatively well and what the team should stop or start doing more or less. The host can then develop an action plan after the voting session.

Suggestions and variations

After the vote, if the ideas selected are still too vague, you’ll have to follow up with a decision-making activity to refine the action plan.

The Starfish activity allows you to adopt a continuous improvement initiative in the team. You can change things up with other similar activities:
