Create Common Ground. Our retrospective app is designed to put in-person and remote participants on equal footing. Every phase of the meeting can be done together, and brainstormed items always remain anonymous to encourage full disclosure.

Modern Feel. All team members participate in grouping brainstormed cards, and can see teammates' cards dragging and dropping, live!

Easily Discuss Improvements. Topic groups are voted on by everybody. Topics receiving the most votes are discussed first, so that the hottest issues receive the most time.

Clear Next Steps. Parabol features a meeting Summary delivered to all stakeholders via email or Slack, which details what has been discussed, and who is accountable for what.

Retrospective Discussion and Tasks

Track Progress. Parabol’s tasking system includes integrations, notifications, mentions, due dates, and rich text formatting. Use Parabol’s optional Action Meeting process to track improvements between Retrospectives.

Expert Advice. Parabol also offers affordable Facilitation & Coaching to help you improve your team's decision-making, role clarification, and operating processes.
