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 several iterations with the affordable collaborative game “Escape” for providing the opportunity to experience team dynamics from different perspectives as team member and observer. In each iteration 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 a short time span. And it's a fun and energizing format, which is well suited for team liftoffs and retrospectives.

You will experience

  • effects of distance on the effectiveness of team communication
  • positive and bad impact of time pressure
  • the power of observing, listening and reflecting
  • the difference of being within a team or its observer
  • a powerful simulation that Agile Coaches and Scrum Masters can use with their teams
  • an affordable collaborative game that can be used to simulate and reflect on Agile Team Dynamics

Furthermore you can take away a workshop format that you can run with your own teams or within your own classes, especially in liftoffs and retrospectives.
