Agile ones game

  1. 1. Agile 1’s Game
  2. 2. We work in teams, in a pipeline
  3. 3. Each team has a ‘Backlog’ of story cards
  4. 4. The aim is to get story cards from ‘Backlog’ to ‘Done’
  5. 5. Each story card has a size
  6. 6. Each story has to be worked on by every team member in turn
  7. 7. You can only work on a story that is in front of you
  8. 8. Each team member has six dice
  9. 9. Every day we all throw all our dice TOGETHER
  10. 10. Every ‘1’ you throw is one unit of work done
  11. 11. Record the amount of work done on the story in front of you
  12. 12. When you have finished a story, pass it to the next team member
  13. 13. Each story takes the same amount of work from every team member
  14. 14. Questions?
  15. 15. Form into teams - choose a name
  16. 16. Create your pipeline
  17. 17. Create a backlog of 5 stories
  18. 18. Questions?
  19. 19. Iteration 1
  20. 20. Retrospective
  21. 21. Backlog You can use a unit of work to create a new story for the backlog:
  22. 22. Iteration 2
  23. 23. Retrospective

  25. 25. Iteration 3
  26. 26. Retrospective
  27. 27. Swarming Before your team rolls, you can decide to lend some of your dice to another team member For each die that you lend, you must put another die aside: Lend Put aside Roll 1 1 4 2 2 2 3 3 0
  28. 28. Iteration 4
  29. 29. Retrospective
  30. 30. Defects After each ‘day’, roll 2 dice for each card that is still ‘in progress’ Total Outcome 10 Lose all work done 11 Lose all work done AND move card back one 12 Lose all work done AND move card to backlog
  31. 31. Iteration 5
  32. 32. Retrospective
  33. 33. WIP Implement a work in progress limit of 2. So, no story can move to the next stage in the pipeline if there is a story being worked on in that stage.
  34. 34. Iteration 6
  35. 35. Retrospective
  36. 36. WIP and Buffers Vary the WIP limit. Create buffers.
  37. 37. Iteration 7
  38. 38. Retrospective
