About the Book

What questions do you ask in Agile Retrospectives? Here’s a card deck (PDF format) with powerful questions that you can use as inspiration!

This is a new product which consists of Questions Cards that can be used in Agile Retrospectives. Agile Coaches can use these cards to coach people and teams as part of an agile transformation.

The questions on these cards are based on the Manifesto for Agile Software Development. There are 15 questions for each of the four values of the manifesto, both for the left and right side of the value (it’s “over” so both sides are valuable).

Additionally, there are 12 bonus questions that you can use to help teams to think about their agile journey, and empty cards that you can use to add your own questions. In total there are 78 cards with questions and 3 support/information cards.


  • Individuals and Interactions
  • Processes and Tools
  • Working Software
  • Comprehensive Documentation
  • Customer Collaboration
  • Contract Negotiation
  • Responding to Change
  • Following a Plan
  • Bonus: Powerful Questions

These questions come from the many retrospectives that I have facilitated and from my workshops and coaching sessions.
