Description

Join Luke Hohmann for 1, 2, or 3 days of his Agile Workshop Series

After his keynote presentation at the Agile Warrior Series Conference in Dallas, Luke will be teaching what he preaches in three highly interactive courses. See below for more details:


DAY 1 (10/25): INNOVATION GAMES FOR AGILE TEAMS

At the very first Agile conference in 2003, Luke Hohmann introduced the world to Innovation Games®! Since then, the use of in-person and online Innovation Games has become a standard practice in many Agile teams, helping them to build better products and services.

And now that Agile has scaled to large, multi-site development teams, Innovation Games has scaled right along with Agile through online versions of the games that enable dozens of teams to solve problems together while preserving their Agile team structure.

This course will enable agile practitioners to put both in-person and online Innovation Games to use to:

We will also use 20/20 Vision to include one bonus framework that addresses a problem chosen by the class. In the process, you get two additional frameworks!

DAY 2 (10/26): AGILE PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT

Based on the book How to Prioritize Your Project Portfolio Using Conteneo Collaboration Games, Agile Portfolio Management is a fast-paced, learning-by-doing, experience-based course that teaches you how to use Conteneo’s in-person and online collaboration frameworks to effectively prioritize and manage your project portfolios. It teaches you how to create better business results by overcoming the limitations of ROI analysis and giving you the tools to manage strategic portfolios, allocate resources and implement Agile through effective portfolio management.

You will learn how to use a variety of collaboration frameworks and game plans that will enable you to:

  • Build alignment on goals and strategic objectives before prioritizing projects.
  • Engage in strategic prioritization before tactical prioritization.
  • Understand time horizons for planning and determing "what is strategic?"
  • Distinguish between "Run the Business" projects and "New Work" or "Innovative Work".
  • Distinguish between "Reserving Resources" and "Allocating Resources".
  • Use online frameworks to include distributed decision makers and stakeholders in the process.
  • Develop the attributes you will use in the prioritization process.
  • Develop and implement reprioritization and resource reallocation rhythms.

DAY 3 (10/27): GAME DESIGN MASTER CLASS

This class is fast-paced and team-oriented. After instruction in game theory and design strategy, participants will theory into practice, first using the Collaborative Game Design Canvas™ to analyze an existing game and then using it to design their own games. Wear comfortable clothing, because you're going to be working in small teams! After taking this class you will be able to create online and in-person collaboration frameworks to tackle complex business problems in strategy, competitive positioning, marketing and product development.

Give Me the Bullets - What Will We Cover:

  • Game Theori - What "is" a Game, after all?
  • Structure/Components of Serious/Collaborative Games
  • The Collaborative Game Design Canvas™, a powerful new canvas for designing games
  • Design strategies and proven processes for game adaptation and creation
  • How to determine game mode (online, in-person, hybrid)
  • Online & in-person facilitation strategies
