Retrium offers the ability to create a custom retrospectives. You can do a Team Radar retrospective (discussed here) or a sticky notes-style retrospective.

You can either:

  • Start a retrospective from scratch and create your own custom, Team Radar before you begin your team’s retrospective, or
  • Adjust the number and labels of any of our Team Radar retrospective templates during the “define” phase of the retrospective, so any technique we offer will fit with the way your team wants to collect responses and discuss results

Team Radars are a great way to rate how the team thinks or feels about a topic. We suggest using custom Team Radars to answer questions like:

  • How well are we living our company’s core values?
  • How are we doing with our team goals?
  • How are things going with each of our working agreements?

How to Create a Custom Team Radar

When facilitators begin a retrospective in Retrium, there’s an option to start from scratch and create your own Team Radar retrospective at the bottom of the list of templates.

The facilitator can then edit the labels of the existing spokes, add or delete spokes (Team Radars can have a maximum of seven spokes) and add a title for the retrospective.

This means that Retrium can be used to gather numerical data on any number of topics and exactly the way you want! You can mix it up and try something new to keep your retrospectives fresh and interesting.

Edit an Existing Team Radar by Adding New Spokes and Labels

If you start with one of our Team Radar Templates, the facilitator of your team’s retrospective facilitator can now add, remove, or rename any label on a spoke before your team collects responses.

This allows your team to start with tested templates that customers love, while also being able to make your team's Radar retrospective your own.

  1. Choose your technique and start the retrospective. This will start with pre-labeled template, but you can always make changes. 
  2. New spokes can be added, spokes can be removed, or labels can be changed. Spokes can be added to any section of the Team Radar, so you can always organize information how you like.
  3. Once the Team Radar has been edited and is ready for feedback, your team can move on to collect responses, just like with any of our Team Radar templates.
