    ı am planning a training session for the management team of customer care group. So I would like to make them play 2 games to better understand Agile principles and Scrum framework. Can you recommend games for Agile and Scrum?

    Hello Ebru,

    I created a community website where people post games/simulations/exercises for accelerating the adoption of agile principles:
    http://tastycupcakes.org

    There are a lot of games on there, but some I use fairly consistently are:
    Scrum Resort Brochure: http://tastycupcakes.org/2009/06/resort-brochure/‎
    What Were They Thinking: http://tastycupcakes.org/2009/06/what-were-they-thinking/
    99 Test Balloons: http://tastycupcakes.org/2009/06/99-test-balloons/
    Presto Manifesto: http://tastycupcakes.org/2009/06/presto-manifesto/

    Hope that helps!

    Don

    One of the things which worked for me during my training session was a compressed 3 day sprint with each day being 10 minutes.

    We were divided into Scrum teams and given a problem and asked to deliver the product at the end of the sprint.

    Pretty intensive way of crunching all important topics into a compressed time frame but it worked for me.

    The choice of the game depends one the knowledge of your trainees and the time they can afford !
    I use very "Pocket Sized Principle" from tasty cupcakes, thank you very much Don !
    It is also very short, and I like short games when the trainees are busy managers.
    For a full Scrum training, I like http://www.lego4scrum.com , but you need at least 2h, and some lego bricks ;-)
