Talk given at the 2011 Lean Agile Scrum Conference, Zurich, Switzerland
September 14, 2011
Jane McGonigal provoked an interesting discussion with her book "Reality Is Broken:. Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World" Agile teams experience many of the aspects of the gameplay benefits that McGonigal talks about: flow (from feedback) autotelic reward and happiness from working with others. This session explores the ways in Which agile development delivers to the four intrinsic rewards its Practitioners - satisfying work, experience of being successful, social connection and meaning - and looks into ways in Which We can design our work to further bridge the divide between games and reality.
