  3. 3. ABSTRACT What happens when 25 product owners, developers, and quality engineers reflect on their previous sprint through the eyes of a child? Playdoh took my teams, remote and collocated, from showing up to an obligatory meeting on their calendar to intentional interpersonal and intrapersonal dialogue. Between the carpet and the sticky fingers, adults are usually cleaning up more Playdoh than playing with it themselves. Even to my own surprise, in this “Play Retro,” our team members connected, not only on a professional, but also on a personal level in ways they had not done before. This session will give an overview of our experience using a “Play Retro” and leave you with tips and things to consider planning a retrospective.
