Gamified Simulation: Learning mechanism to be an impactful Scrum Master
We represent the Agile Center of Excellence at our organization and are chartered to drive the change management initiative to imbibe Agile adoption across the enterprise.
We realized that while the external Scrum Master Certification trainings or our internal certification training would help ingrain the knowledge of a Scrum Master; However we found it extremely crucial that there needs to be some mechanism to ensure the candidates should understand the on ground situations/challenges and various behavioral scenarios that they would face wherein they need to take certain decision accordingly.
We used the gamification concept to capture our past experiences in various engagements wherein we had encountered multiple situations/challenges faced by the Scrum Masters. This would help the newly onboarded trained Scrum Master to improve upon their decision making thought process. The concept would also have a scoring mechanism which would give them chance to improve upon their existing competency.
The gamification would focus on:
- Problem solving in the given situation
- Facilitation skills
- Process Concepts
- Stakeholder relationship
- Building high performance teams
- Building Early warning system
