Improve your sprints with our sprint retrospective tools
Run effective sprint retrospective meetings
A retrospective meeting with your team members can help you gather the positive and critical feedback you need to improve processes and plan next steps. An online sprint retrospective can help you and your team visualize problems that need addressing, as well as what’s working well. Lucidspark can help your team keep ideas organized and ready to implement in future projects. More importantly, our online retrospective board can help your team stay aligned on key ideas and goals.
Start and manage your sprint retrospective remotely
Use our sprint retrospective tools to get all of the benefits of an in-person meeting, even when you’re working remotely. Our virtual whiteboard and creative tools are ideal for remote teams who want to get every team member engaged with optimizing their Agile processes. Get started on your retrospective by adding containers to your board or customizing one of our retrospective templates. With an infinite workspace at your team’s disposal, you can fit all your ideas, goals, and feedback in one central location.
Collaborate with anyone, from anywhere
Make your online retrospective board a place where users are free to speak up about what is and isn’t working with your project. With features like comments, @mentions, and in-product chat, you can make sure that everyone’s input is collected, organized, and acknowledged before moving forward. Color-code contributions by collaborator or follow individual collaborators to see who has added what to your board. Lucidspark updates every edit in real time, so you and your team never miss a beat.
Manage your sprint tasks and progress effortlessly
Lucidspark lets you manage every aspect of your team sprint, from the moment you assign tasks to project completion. Organize your online sprint retrospective with tools like assisted grouping, tags, and custom templates to create a consistent experience for your team. Create progress lanes with easy-to-use containers, so you track and manage statuses within your board. With your online retrospective board as a single source of truth for your entire team, you can make sure everyone is up to speed on tasks, statuses, and project progress.
Integrate your work across today’s most popular platforms
Integrate your Lucidspark board across the apps your team uses every day to seamlessly incorporate your online retrospective board into your workflow. Insert your board into your team’s Slack channel and give them access to leave comments and make edits. Export your board to Google Drive, where all of your work, including feedback, will be securely synced. Lucidspark’s sprint retrospective tools are also completely integrated with Lucidchart, so you can incorporate the ideas from your retrospective into your processes or other polished deliverables.

See Lucidspark in action
A demo of a sample Lucidspark brainstorming board is shown, with lots of active participation from the four participants across the entire board. Next, a rapid series of close ups demonstrating some Lucidspark features: Writing on a sticky note, drawing a circle around an idea, starting a 30-second timer, crossing an item off an agenda, adding emoji reactions to a sticky note, and sharing a board with collaborators in the share settings. The video then continues to demo features in line with the narrator's audio for the remainder of the video. The video ends with the Lucidspark logo and tagline Where ideas ignite.
