Rule #1: Clear goals



   There needs to be clear and defined goals
   or outcomes that have to be achieved.




                   The Agile Revolution Podcast http://www.theagilerevolution.com   11
                        Agile Forest Blog http://www.agileforest.com
Rule #2: Constraints



   There must be set rules in place to limit how
   you go about achieving the goal. By limiting
   obvious approaches to receiving the goal
   you are forced to think creatively or
   strategically.

                        Agile Forest Blog http://www.agileforest.com
Rule #3: Real time feedback



   The environment must provide feedback
   telling us how we were progressing as
   playing or when the game is over.

   Even if we loose it needs to provide us
   feedback so that we know how close we
   got, motivating us to try that little bit harder.

Rule #4: Voluntary participation



   They must be voluntary. No one forces us to
   play them.

Editor's Notes

  1. Who here in the audience would consider themselves a gamer?Are you only putting your hand up now because of the picture?
  2. The reality is gamers have somewhat of a bad rap. The term “gamer” engenders ideas of pasty white teenagers of middle aged single men living their days in a zombie like state in the basement of their parents house spending over forty hours a week with their eyes glued to the pixels on their screen smashing keys on their keyboard.
  3. Atari 2600, Commadore 64
  4. If you think about it – Board games are often role playing games. A banker? A real estate investor? A detective? A doctor?
  5. Six to sixteen netballFourteen to sixteen volleyballBut for you this could have been cricket or rugby, basketball or golf.
  6. What about life – is it a game?What about work?Many of you would have heard the of “gaming the system”. How many have done this (where they system is your workplace)?The reality is we are doing it, a lot. Think about some large environments. Take their PMOs as an example. Have you ever gamed the PMO system?I have built systems with the distinct intent that they get gamed. Do you think systems should be built this way? Consider a governance system where it is easy to get incremental funding, but hard to get large funding for projects – say $10m. What do you think people will do? They will try to game the system and will break their work down. Is this a bad thing?
  7. When we do Agile – are there elements that are like a game?
  8. What is gamification? Gaming rules and dynamics applied to things that aren’t video games to enhance engagement.Most people think that gamification is about making work “fun” – this really isn’t the purpose, it is the outcome, and an indirect one at that.
  9. Clear goals and outcomes – clear for board games, sports games, computer games… but what about work? What clear goals do we have in Agile? The meta-goal is to deliver or enhance the product, the timely goal is deliver an iteration or velocity. But what about Kanban or Lean Startup teams? In a Kanban environments the goal could be conceived as delivering to your cycle time but I don’t think that is correct – the goal is to manage your flow in order to reduce variability. In Lean Startups your goal is to learn.
  10. Constraints are an intriguing thing. We often think that the world is too constrained, and yet innovation can be driven from highly constrained environments. Take Jugaad or frugal innovation for example – new world solutions born out of the constraints of a third world. Constraints in sports and games.Constraints in life/work? Are we constrained by the need to pay a mortgage? Is this a constraint that is overriding our ability to be fulfilled at work? How many of you have clearly defined constraints at work? Inherent knowledge if rife in the workplace and yet it is only when we identify these constraints and call them out for what they are that we can actually challenge them. We need to move away from the Monkey and Banana problem and move into a world of defined constraints in order to succeed.Constraints in Agile? Surprisingly there are a few additional constraints made – sacred timeboxes and limiting work in progress are such examples. When Kanban talks about defining “explicit policies” this is about defining your constraints.
  11. This is my favourite rule – because to me it defines success or not for most games. In sports – referee, scoreboard. It is almost instant.In video games it IS instant. You see immediate results based upon your actions. Work is incredibly poor at this. Think of HR teams that you work with. Of performance reviews, of strategic planning and how they link to your KRAs. As a customer who do you do your business with is almost always as a result of how quick feedback is made. Forbes – Internet Leads “you are 100 times more likely to contact a lead in the first five minutes than at 30 minutes.” Agile does this really well in comparison to waterfall – breaking work down and getting feedback in small increments, getting feedback on the process itself through retrospectives.
  12. Games and sports – this is easy.Work is a little harder – do we play the game of life for money or do we play it because we enjoy the game? With Gallup in the US reporting that 70% of employees are disengaged we have a major issue at play. Agile – harder again. Should you force people to use Agile or does it have to be voluntary?
  13. You can build your own games too – Just follow the rules! Build a game and test it by yourself. Adjust the timings and instructions until you believe the outcome can be successfully reached. Once you are happy with it pilot it with a supportive group. Incrementally adjust and refactor until it is hitting the mark. Car Change – 1 iterationSnapper – 4 iterationsKanbanopoly – 7 iterations
  14. Originally designed by Joshua Kerievsky from Industrial Logic as XP War this game has been adapted over the years to expand on common problems and the new Agile practices.

  18. But this happens in real life – meetups are a classic example.
  19. George Clooney – Up in the Air, Sounds like the game of life!Think back to my Cabbage Patch Kid doll. I wanted to have a “one of a kind of a cabbage patch kid” because there was status with having a unique item.Achievements board example earlier is also a status driven motivator.
  20. Levelling up.
  21. Google is classic example of thisThe Golem Project is one of the more earlier examples of this in action. Twelve years ago, it was the first internet crowdsourcing projects to determine if we could unravel the secrets of evolution through mass computational power.
