Before jumping to solutions, it's probably worth letting the
retrospective process continue and identify the thing folks think
solving would be the best benefit for the project for the next cycle.
I feel like in the past we often jumped to solutions before the problem
space was fully left out, which led to long email threads and little
action, as we hadn't come together on the problem we were trying to solve.
