Agile Games: Using Simple Play to Generate Lasting Insights
by Mark Dodge and Vaibhav Gandhi
( scheduled on Friday Morning )
With a little creativity and ingenuity, learn how extending simple games can help agile teams explore challenges via a different lens to generate lasting insights and reveal new possibilities for improvement.
But isn’t creating agile games hard to do? Where do I start? We’ll share some game design theory and some tips from our experiences starting with simple games and extending them to create fun game spaces for agile teams to play, explore, and generate lasting insights.
We’ll also discuss how to spot team dysfunction and share some games to remediate them and then we’ll wrap up by facilitating a brief game design session demonstration with the audience to create and enhance a game “on-the-fly”.
