Who is this for?

For those who are directing Agile development teams in what they build
- CEOs at start-ups,

- customers of digital agencies and suppliers,

- those deputised to fill the customer role,

e.g. product managers and owners.

Background

This game will to illustrate how products are built using Agile methods and how Agile teams work. We'll start with an idea for a new product, we'll decide what needs doing, we'll plan it and we'll... roll dice!

We don't have time to actually build something but we do have time to rehearse how it might be built. In doing so we can explore both how Agile teams operate, how you might measure a team and how you might predict "when will it be done."

More importantly we'll see how its easy to change what we want and pursue other opportunities.

After we've done the dice exercise we'll discuss the exercise and how it applies in real life.

Key takeaways:

- Understand the mechanics of Agile iterations
- Recognise the significance of prioritisation and how to set priorities
- See how limiting work in progress can accelerate delivery
- Understand why customer involvement is important in sprint planning
- Understand the framework for planning and forecastingWhat will you learn?
