what NOT worked

Retrospective was on one topic. It should have moved on to other important topics.
Maybe having more sessions remotely (maybe via voice). We won't have so many topics acuulated.
I still don't have a good handle on future tasks: what aren't we doing. what we forgot?
Not many rooms for meetings
We didn't have one dinner with the whole team.
Roadmap and retrospective on different days.
ASN's key management skills
Random trac tickets in roadmapping - grooming backlog weird | closing old tickets would be good.
Need different hand signals for I want to talk next about the same point or I want to talk about a different point.
Not so good at time keeping toward end of the week.
Noisy lights.
I wanted even more time.
Still have everyone talking at once for too long.
I didn't have energy for downtime and social time
I want more downtime and social time.
