A Game for Learning Scrumban Principles

The guys from Scrumban [R]Evolution made a game / simulation / training tool  … I tried it and it is indeed fun if you want to get the key points!

You can also take that tool as an opportunity to (collectively?) reflect on how you proceed work! … Well yes: I personally still doubt that a few of the possible – and in game context effective – strategies would really generate benefit in real life – eg throwing 7+ people on 1-point user story … so for me a few questions are meanwhile left unanswered … but the game was mentioned on the first pages of Scrumban [R]Evolution … so there´s a good chance that the book will answer those questions too 🙂

This is real fun! If you´re into “planning”, scrum, kanban or software development, take some time to check this game!
