A smart board game-based workshop for learning how to manage a project using Agile methodology. Participants in the game – experienced or new project managers and project team members - will learn the language, principles, roles, rituals, tools and concepts behind the Agile Scrum and Agile Kanban methodologies, in a fun, innovative and unique way.
During the game, participants will need to complete a collaborative project detailed through a centralized backlog and divided between different product owners and Scrum teams. Each team will need to plan and complete their share of the backlog, considering the value to the customer and in accordance with time and budget constraints. On the Kanban board of the game, the teams will consider their outputs and work to clear tickets from the backlog.
At the end of the game, a discussion will be held, allowing participants to refine the key points raised during the game, and their connection to real-life challenges. The differences between the Agile methodologies and the classic approaches to project management will also be discussed, as well as the application of the different approaches to different projects.
