“I find it to be the most engaging way to explain agile to a team. In 90 minutes you get to experience flow, teamwork, and collaboration in a way that other simulations cannot match.” — Mariapaola S.
“I found the workshop amazing and eye-opening. Breaking down the factors influencing the stories delivery time and estimation was something I never thought about. Additionally, it was great to see a real-world-example for a Monte-Carlo-computation. These three hours were very well-spent and I already recommended your workshop and the game to several colleagues.”
“Thank you so much for running this game and sharing your insights — especially regarding the low correlation between effort and delivery time — that really was powerful.”
“I left with a lot of food for thought and it was great fun, too. Thank you very much!”
“I was surprised that learning can be so much fun and that effective.”
“The discussions in the beginning — i.e. the role assignments, initial estimation — themselves are worth the event.”
“I was able to implement the learnings directly the next day onto my project.”
“Playful hands-on learning.”
“Highly engaged trainer.”
“It helps reorient your agile compass.”
“I was skeptical about not estimating backlog items and I joined the no estimates session to see if I could be proved wrong. It turns out I could.” — Mariapaola S.
“Love this game! Such a great vehicle for learning about kanban and value delivery!” —Remy F.
“Thanks for the valuable session. Lit up a lot of thought provoking bulbs in my head related to estimation. I am surely going to explore this subject more!” — YK
