Abstract/Description

Do you want to experience and observe the dynamics of an Agile Team? Do you accept the challenge to escape a collapsing temple? This session runs two iterations with the affordable collaborative game “Escape” for providing the opportunity to experience team dynamics from different perspectives as team member and observer. In two iterations all teams work for themselves and try to escape a collapsing temple. Each round is followed by a reflection, in which team members and observers discuss and learn about the recognized behaviors and how to improve the next round. It’s a great simulation for teams starting with Agile in order to experience and reflect the probable team dynamics within ten minutes. And it's a fun and energizing format, which is well suited for team liftoffs and retrospectives.
