Abstract:

"Okay team, let's do some Scrum, I will count to three and then you will collaborate and be self organized!

One....two..."

Asking a team to be self-organised can be confusing and difficult.
It's not natural, it's not easy and if you have ever lived in a command-and-control environment, it is certainly a paradigm change.
What if we could teach and practice ‘Self-Organisation’ playing one game that implies communication, movement...and chairs?
Let's have fun together discovering the importance of Trust in an Agile team.

"...Three !"
