Developed by Alistair Cockburn, this amazing workshop seems to be about learning how to slice stories extremely thinly, but with every round I've run proves to be so much more. After group discussions of why small stories are a good idea, value delivery curves, and techniques for splitting stories, participants build a backlog for a small application. Then, in five eight-minute sprints, they build it! The workshop typically closes with rich conversations about the experience and how participants will apply it to their work.
For Agile Games 2015, I would like to extend the session to help others learn how to facilitate this workshop. I believe it is a must-have in the toolkit of every coach working with software developers in an Agile context. While you can use Cockburn's instructions or Henrik Kniberg's excellent facilitation guide, I'd love to help people get a head start through experiencing the workshop and talking to someone who has run it before.
