Dive into root causes and contributing factors

Getting ahead of incidents means knowing what caused them. Our retrospectives can prod into the story behind the incident with custom questioning. Holistically explore all the factors, from technical errors to infrastructure limits to constraints on your team.

Be Blameless!

If you’re pointing fingers, you’re losing out!
We don’t call it an incident post-mortem. Why discourage the heroes that keep your services running? The Blameless Retrospective includes out-of-the-box templates so you can build reliable reports across all incidents. Checkbox surveys in the Overview tab keep the data consistent. Then pair it with color commentary using a collaborative text editor in the Analysis tab.
Why don’t we call it a post-mortem? Learn more!

Share learning

Use retrospectives to circulate tribal knowledge
Collect your learnings and make it easy to share across the org. Export and share reports to managers and other stakeholders. Know if a retrospective is “In Review” or “Published” by simply checking the status. You can decide if a retrospective is “Not Required” for specific incident types or severity levels by updating your settings.

Fix the right problems

Incidents can turn out to be unplanned investments in your engineering org
Take the next step of learning and growth by analyzing your retrospective data in Blameless Reliability Insights. Build a report that tracks the data reported in the Overview tab of your retrospective. The consistent data reporting allows you to spot trends over time, signaling to you when it might be time to take action.

Lighten the load

Warning: You may start to enjoy writing retrospectives
Retrospectives are automatically linked in Blameless to its corresponding parent incident. This makes it easy to check back on the incident page for more context to inform your analysis. Blameless will already display the incident event timeline so that you don’t have to switch between tabs to visualize the story as you’re writing about it.
