We are going to play a matching game aimed at teaching you intuition. The same kind of games used to teach people to identify chickens when they are young, or teach actually pigeons to detect cancer from MRI slides.
Come learn how to learn taste and see the patterns only your subconscious can detect.
Teams Want a Quick Game to Learn How to Deliver Value Faster
Agile helps you to deliver what’s valuable to the customer faster. You can capture, prioritize, communicate, and deliver that value with good user stories. In our experience, a major impediment to writing good user stories in the real word is a lack of example stories. We have created a set of games that incorporate 80 examples of good and bad user stories. The games are easy to learn, play, and teach so that you can experience good user stories in just a few minutes. Come play the games and then share them with your friends and co-workers!
"Cut the Blue Wire. . ." Play an Agile Team Culture GameBruce Conner
schedule 1 month agoSold Out!
In Agile we learn by doing, so what better way to learn about Agile culture than hands-on exposure? Using a commercially available game ("Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes" by Steel Crate Games), session participants will experience being on a new team with a vaguely defined task and no coherent team culture, to see how teams and companies build their own culture and process through self-organization.
The game itself is simple, and like all good games it is highly unpredictable in actual play. The goal is, as a team, to defuse a virtual time-bomb. One person is in charge of doing the actual defusing of the device on the screen, while the rest of the team consults a printed manual with the instructions. The defuser isn’t allowed to see the manual, and the group with the manual cannot see the screen with the device. Communication is critical to success.
Some of the concepts demonstrated in the session include:
- Communication styles, natural and synthetic
- Spontaneous naming conventions
- Working collaboratively with comfort
- Cultural differences on teams
- Working within time constraints
- WIP limits
- Importance of retrospectives
