A tsunami of A-HA moments!
Three valuable simulations of Agile methodologies, which will change your perspective on day-to-day job and can be implemented in your team/organization anytime.
Reading and hearing about Agile methods and best practices is great. But experiencing them in a safe environment, through a game, that’s where the learning really starts.
In this full-day training, we cover key aspects of the Agile way of work through three simulations in the following order:
- Kanban - pizza game
- Business Value Game
- Agile balls
Training is held in person only, with 12-16 participants for maximum value for each participant.
Each simulation begins with a short introduction of the subject and ends with a debrief, where we look at the key learnings.
Kanban - pizza game
Kanban is a method or a tool where we visualize workflow in a fully transparent way, with an aim to improve the work process.
With this gamification of Kanban, participants get to know how they can move from an existing process to a more effective Kanban system. They learn how to visualize it and start changing/improving it.
What does pizza have to do with Kanban? You’d be surprised how widely and easily Kanban can be used.
Business value game
Agile teams want to deliver maximum business value. In the business value game, we simulate Scrum and prioritize backlog based on business value.
How can you estimate business value? How do you decide between stories? How do you decide between projects? How do you decide between clients? This game gives you some simple business value estimation techniques that are “good enough” for everyday use.
The goal of the game is to deliver as much value to the customer as possible. We provide the clients and their wishes. We suggest the techniques to estimate business value. The rest is up to you.
Importance of team learning and delivering value in quick iterations.
Agile & Scrum are currently one of the hottest topics in the world, not just in IT. Luckily there is a fun way to experience the basic principles and values of the Agile world. This fun team exercise offers a complete simulation of the agile way of work: planning, execution, inspection, and adaptation of teamwork, based on previous results, retrospective and quick iterations.
