Hands-on practice: two ways to run a project Hands-on practice: two ways to run a project Presentation Transcript

  • Hands-on practice:two ways to run a projectThe Ball-Point Game Reloaded
  • The Ball-Point GameFacts:○ game author is Boris Bloger○ introduced at Spring Scrum Gathering 2008 in Chicago by Tobias Mayer○ simulates Scrum process
  • How it looks like?Team members pass the ballsamongst the whole team.When the ball goes throw all teammembers it is produced.
  • RulesThe basic rules are:○ The balls must have air time○ Balls that hit the floor don’t count, and have to be returned to the starting point to get them back in play○ No balls to your direct neighbour○ Start point = End point (i.e. the container)○ Iteration = 2 minutes○ In between = 1 minute, to review and plan○ Play 5 iterations
  • What we are going to do?Agenda:● simulate plan-driven approach● simulate change-driven approach● analyze lessons learned
  • So we needtwo sets of rules for two different approaches!
  • Making teams
  • Rules for plan-driven approachAdditional rules for plan-driven approach:● Number of balls to use is predefined● Number of balls to be produced is predefined● Planning phase: 3 min● Production phase: 3 min● Review: 1 min
  • Rules reloadedThe basic rules are:○ The balls must have air time○ Balls that hit the floor don’t count, and have to be returned to the starting point to get them back in play○ No balls to your direct neighbour○ Balls must be touched by hand○ The ball is produced when it passed through all team members○ Teams can use whatever it wants during the production phase○ The team can not change its process during production phase○ Teams are accountable for counting the produced balls quantity
  • Plan-driven approachretrospective● What happened?● Did you want to change the process?● What will happen if the production phase lasts for 15 minutes?
  • Making new teams
  • Rules for change-drivenapproachRules for change-driven approach:● Team can use as much balls as it likes● Team defines the quantity of balls it is committed to produce● Planning phase: 1 min● Production phase: 1 min● Review: 1 min● Play 3-5 iterations
  • Rules reloadedThe basic rules are:○ The balls must have air time○ Balls that hit the floor don’t count, and have to be returned to the starting point to get them back in play○ No balls to your direct neighbour○ Balls must be touched by hand○ The ball is produced when it passed through all team members○ Teams can use whatever it wants during the production phase○ The team can not change its process during production phase○ Teams are accountable for counting the produced balls quantity
  • Change-driven approachretrospective● And what happened at this time?● Did you want to change the process?● Did you change it? How?● What was the iteration that felt great?
  • Lessons learnedWhat did you learn today? … Fill it by yourself!
  • But think about…● What made the teamwork?● How time pressure affects the team?● How did you improve as a team?● In what simulation production process is more cost effective?● Why the team began to show more predictable result?
  • Deming cycleIs it better to havea long feedback loop ora short one?
