Hello everyone, hope you are well and safe. 


I am helping to conduct an internal course about agility (scrum, kanban, XP, devops) for directors and c-level executives. 
In the Scrum topic I would like to do an exercise with the audience so there is more interaction. 

The exercise I was thinking to do is as follows:
- The audience will be divided into scrum teams and will revisit a retrospective event, using the speed boat exercise. A description of the Sprint will be provided to everyone. 

Do you think this is a good exercise, or would you recommend any different one?

Thank you in advance!!!

Depends on how the Sprint is described. Directors may tend to focus on the outcome of the sprint, instead of the interactions, processes and tools...

What are the key takeaways you want senior leadership to learn? I favor Done, MVP, and Urgency, wargaming a pandemic exercise in which ventilators and/or patient monitoring devices are built in Sprint timescales. It's topical and non-spurious, having been done for real last year.

The same. Totally agree
