Gamestorming for Software Engineers

Slides from my Gamestorming talk at

"Hopefully this meeting is over soon, and I can get back to my desk to get some real work done!" Meetings are an essential part of today's business life. We gather with our colleagues in the hope of finding innovative solutions to our problems or generating breakthrough ideas. But yet, most meetings are dull, monopolized by a few and more often than not they produce no satisfying results.

But in recent years a new trend emerged to fight unproductive meetings: Gamestorming - playing creative games. In this talk we will explore why Gamestorming is so successful, why games are not only more fun, but can make us more productive, too.

To round it off we will go over some of the most popular and effective games that are particularly useful in the context of software engineering.
