Play an agile game with some fellow Agilists to explore key agile concepts including value, focus, slack, commitment, respect and openness and to explore the effects of a wider system on teams. During the game participants are invited to think about teams and outcomes from both the customer’s and a team member’s point of view. Using a metaphorical team of “Scrum Builders” rather than a software team helps tap into a deeper level of thinking with some extra psychological safety thrown in for free. I have found that game works well either with a group or an individual. I have played it with scrum teams, product owners, project managers, an entire project office, groups of managers and leaders to explore and open discussions around the relationships between value and trade-offs between environment and outcome.
In this session you will playing an online version of this game in Jamboard, this is an interactive workshop/game and it will last approx 30 to 45 mins depending on level of discussion. This event will be facilitated by John Albrecht of All Agile Limited – allagile.co.uk and of scrumlake.com
