    CANCELLED - Agile Fluency® Game night

    Cancelled due to Coronavirus.

    Come play the Agile Fluency Game! You’ll gain new insights into the benefits and trade-offs of adopting agile practices—and you’ll have a great time doing it.

    The Agile Fluency Game authentically simulates 2½ years on a software development team. It was developed so experiments in the game lead to new insights about your real-world options. As you play the game, you’ll make decisions about which agile practices to adopt. Of course, you have to deliver features, too! Or what’s the point?

    This is a great experience for agile team members interested in learning more about their options; managers and leaders wanting to better understand agile development; and people who enjoy modern board games such as Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride.

    “Saved us money on our agile transition effort by getting a preview in 90 minutes!” —Director, Agile Center of Excellence

    “Makes the need for best practices come to life.” —Manager

    “Played first game and beautifully painted ourselves into a corner through the same mistakes real teams make. How’d that happen? Powerful teaching.” —Senior Learning & Development Manager

    “[Our leadership team] experienced 20 years of agile learning in 4 hours!” —Director, R & D

    “The shift from playing the game gave new focus to our discussion of leadership challenges.” —VP, Product Management

    Doors open at 6pm. We’ll start playing at 6:30. Be sure to arrive before then: the building is secured at 6:30 and no further entry is allowed.
