Description

Facilitate the Agile Fluency™ Game and hone your team’s approach to adopting agile practices.

As a player of the Agile Fluency™ Game, you take on the role of a team adopting Agile for the first time. The team’s challenge is deciding how to spend its limited time. Do you develop features or learn new Agile practices? Which features? Which practices? Features are the only way to earn points, but Agile practices help you deliver more. You will receive your own copy of the Agile Fluency Game and learn expert facilitation techniques to use in your own coaching, training, and team-building activities. You'll also learn how to conduct several bonus activities using the game materials. Each activity provides another way to engage your audience and teach them about important Agile concepts!

The Agile Fluency™ Game is a physical, euro-style game that provides a powerful platform for teaching and learning about the benefits and trade-offs of adopting agile practices. Playing the game is a great way to learn how Agile practices affect real-world software development. The Agile Fluency Game includes 19 unique Agile Practice cards that cover planning, programming, testing, collaborating, and more.

As a player of the Agile Fluency™ Game, you take on the role of a team adopting Agile for the first time. The team’s challenge is deciding how to spend its limited time. Do you develop features or learn new Agile practices? Which features? Which practices? Features are the only way to earn points, but Agile practices help you deliver more. Experienced practitioners praise the way the game reflects their personal experiences. Players new to Agile development often find themselves surprised by technical debt or struggling to make time to learn key practices—just like real Agile teams do. Participants at all experience levels express a new- found appreciation for the importance and challenge of adopting Agile practices. You’ll receive a professionally-printed boxed set that includes everything you need to run the game on your own.

The game set includes:
• Fold-out game board
• 19 unique Agile Practice cards
• 21 Feature cards
• 100+ Investment chips
• Progress tracker
• Game rules
• Dry-erase markers

You' ll learn expert facilitation techniques to use in your own coaching, training, and team-building activities, and you’ll learn to conduct several bonus activities using the game materials. Each activity provides another way to engage your audience and teach them about important Agile concepts!

Electronic teaching aids and bonus materials:

• Animated rules video to show your players
• Workshop preparation punchlist How do I play the game with teams?
• The Agile Fluency Game supports one to seven players. A typical session, including instructions and debrief, takes 1.5 to 2 hours.
• One game session is all you need for the core lessons, but the game is challenging enough that most players enjoy the opportunity to play again and try for a better score.
• Each session provides opportunities for further learning. You can use the game as part of a larger training course or as a stand-alone team exercise. Use the Agile Fluency Game to start and sustain a rich conversation about which Agile practices to adopt next and how to achieve proficiency!
