A frequent discussion within online forums and at agile meetups is how to hire the right people for an effective agile team. Many have commented that interviewing candidates using personally biased and possibly dishonest information on resumes, certification results, LinkedIn chatter, and assessment of technical skills can fail to identify good candidates. Imagine instead, you were able to assess relevant skills and behaviors supportive of being an effective member of an agile team using simple interactive games within a job interview setting. In this workshop, participants will experience a series of simple games designed to be used within an interview setting that focus on skills assessment for specific agile team roles, simulating real-life collaborative work activities and evaluating the human skills necessary to be an effective member of an agile team. Interview games use game play and play metaphors to allow interviewers and candidates to simulate work scenarios and then debrief on demonstrated communication abilities, collaborative problem solving, creative thinking, exchanging feedback, identifying ways to improve, and empathizing with others. During this highly interactive session, participants will work in small groups and conduct mock interviews activities to experience the sequence of interview games and gain hands-on experience in how to facilitate and debrief the games presented.
