Resort brochure game

Published on

I used these slides to facilitate the Resort Brochure game, which teaches people how to use the Scrum Agile framework in a fun way. There were 8 teams playing simultaneously (not recommended), and the slides were extremely helpful in explaining what to do at each step, along with my own flip chart task board example.
