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?
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.
