Games for Agile and Scrum
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?
I created a community website where people post games/simulations/exercises for accelerating the adoption of agile principles:
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!

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.
here you will find a Scrum Simulation in german, english and polish:
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 ;-)
Thanks for contributing the details. It is very useful.
Hi, this is puzzle game I created to teach the Agile values and principles: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/teaching-learning-scrum-agile-values-puz…
Hi there :)
A guide to build your own agile game:
Hope you find it useful
A simulation workshop which uses the concept of crime story as a product of a Scrum team:
This is great also for management and non-it people. Everyone can write crime story.
I know this is an old thread but thank you, everyone, that posted on it. It has helped me 6 years later :).
Thank you so much for the great ideas!
I am searching for a good agile simulation game for a Skype-based training that I want to give. Do you have any ideas?
Many thanks and best,
I recommend also 1-minute movie:
An Agile simulation workshop which uses the concept of the movie as a product
Each team would create a 1-minute movie video using their mobile phones, they should create the scenes and actors using Legos and modeling compound.
