Traditionally, in every Agile Month we organize one FREE Agile Workshop, with our Certified Scrum Trainer, Petri Heiramo. In this Agile Month November 2017, we organized for the first time free Kanban Workshop – “Kanban Board Exercise”. This was a great opportunity for all participants to improve their knowledge of Kanban, especially with this hands-on, engaging, and funny game.
The “Kanban Board Exercise” is a physical game designed to teach the concepts and mechanics of Kanban for Software Development in a workshop setting. We played the game in three teams (one team consisted of seven people). Teams competed to maximize profit by optimizing the work flow, throughout three cycles – design, development and testing. During the game, the teams constructed charts based on the game data. Throughout the game, there were simulated different challenges. The idea was to motivate them to explore the various options for system design, prioritisation, and resource allocation decisions.
