We are happy to announce that the upcoming Agile Game Lab will be hosted by Native Instruments in Berlin-Kreuzberg. This is your chance to test out a game or tool you like to facilitate.
RSVP: Meetup Agile Game Lab
Agile Game Lab is your test drive to play games at business
Agile Game Lab is a “mini bar camp” for everyone to learn about Agile while having fun and playing games, to improve facilitation skills by hosting a game session or to find peers to design a new game.
The Agile Game Lab provides a safe environment for everybody who like to learn how to facilitate, teach or coach teams and groups about Agile mindset, tools, and methods.
or check out this presentation about designing a game:
Games to solve serious challenges
We are convinced that games and simulations are useful tools to experience agile practices, to communicate complex problems and to learn how to apply agile and lean thinking to solve them. They are also a great way to explore an issue at work, e.g. how to get rid of command and control, improve flow etc. That’s why games are a very important element of the learning environments we create.
Bring a game! No superpowers but an open mind is required!
Don’t be shy and bring your own game idea to find out if it works while playing with peers. Or try out facilitating a game that you are not yet familiar with. Or just join a session and learn from others. We have some basic moderator materials but please bring anything you need to host a session. There are slots of about 50 minutes for each game. If you need more time, you can play two slots in a row.
Feel free to announce with a post what you like to play
You want to get feedback for your game idea? Just post it as a comment in this meetup or on http://agalab.ideascale.com.
Spread the word, and promote our community
Stefan Haas and Jens Otto Lange from the #PoDojo are looking forward to meeting you.
