    Apologies for the delay and yes.  Actually, looking at timing, I recommend we reduce to just to team game exercises.

    1st Exercise - The "Penny" game where three teams of 3 go through a quick interactive session on Linear, Lean, and Agile.  The teams and the workshop attendees quickly learn the value and power of Lean, group ownership, and small, incremental cycles and production deliveries.

    2nd Exercise - The myth of multi-tasking game where 3 participants learn, and show the workshop attendees the limitations and dangers of multi-tasking / being too divided across multiple projects / initiatives.

    Does this answer your questions / needs?

    Happy Day,

    Hunter.. can you elaborate on the three group exercises and the intended outcomes/lessons learned of each... the board requires additional context in order to make an informed decision. Thanks!
