If you want to become agile and lean, teams need to be able to handle impediments quickly and effectively. This game teaches you to recognize and analyse impediment and to take appropriate action by deploying agile and lean good practices.
Many organizations are going through agile transformations. They are implementing Scrum and maybe large scale agile framework like SAFe or DAD, hoping to better serve the IT needs of the business and to develop products that satisfy their customers. Unfortunately those transformation do not always live up to the agile promise to deliver faster, make better products that customers really like or reducing the IT costs. One of the reasons that transformation fail is that team get blocked while working agile due to impediments, and are unable to solve them themselves or to involve their stakeholders or managers and have them solved.
In this game you will be a team which has been working together for a couple of iterations. The game can be played by 1-4 teams simultaneously. Each team will has Scrum master and a Product Owner. The game consists of a deck of impediment cards, a list of agile and lean good practices, and an impediment board. During the game the teams will be coached in understanding impediments and selecting and deploying good practices to take action.
