Abstract/Description

Are you interested in learning how to identify strong candidates for agile teams faster? Join us for a “fun” workshop on interview games that emulate desired agile team behaviors and collaboration within an interview setting. Participants will experience a series of simple games designed for use during interviews that:

* Assess and discuss relevant skills for agile team roles
* Evaluate communication skills and the ability to respond to change
* Engage in collaborative problem solving working as a team
* Share and receive feedback from others

Interview games allow interviewers and candidates to simulate work scenarios and then debrief on the activities that transpire. Rather than discussing prior achievements on a candidate’s resume, interview games enable a discussion of the shared experience created by the game which provides better data to assess candidate fit. In practice, interview games provide a more engaging and respectful way to assess a candidate’s ability to identify improvement opportunities and to emphasize with others.

During this highly interactive session, participants will work in small groups and conduct mock interviews to experience the sequence of interview games and gain hands-on experience in how to facilitate and debrief the games presented.
