Stop, Start & Continue

View all resources in this section

Stop, Start & Continue is a useful framework for delivering or requesting feedback. It can be used by an individual or used as a team exercise.

Feedback is made up of things the individual or team should keep doing, they should stop doing and new things they should start doing.

Stop, Start & Continue

The framework can also be applied to a project team:

Start –  those things the team will begin doing in the next cycle of the project.

Stop – looks back at the previous cycle of the project to identify which things didn’t work and should cease.

Continue – identifies things that worked in the previous cycle and need to be part of the team’s core activities.
