Our Scrum Games
We teach Scrum, Agile principles, relative size estimation, writing user stories and more in two day sessions using Lego®.
We also deliver advanced training and consulting on moving from doing Agile to BEING Agile.
We offer training on specific topics such as Agile estimation, Writing Good User Stories (and how to split them), and any other Agile related topic that might require some outsider viewpoint within your organisation.
We run a 1 day or 2 day Scrum workshop in a boot camp style session where we immerse in the Agile way of thinking.
The participants learn about the roles and practices of Scrum by being part of a Scrum team and “living” Agile.
Throughout the day, they will participate of different product development games that provide a hands on experience so valuable in understanding the soft skill paradigm of Agile.

Accelerated Learning – Teaching from the Back of the Room
- Movement trumps sitting
- Talking trumps listening
- Images trumps words
- Writing trumps reading
- Shorter trumps longer
- Different trumps same
She also suggests we teach using four simple steps:
- Get them connected to the course content and the other students
- Have students “show and tell” what they’ve learned
- Let the students “do it” – learning is experience
- Stand back and applaud; affirm what they’ve learned
So in our Scrum simulation workshops, I step back from speaking and fully involve the students in the teaching. Getting class participants involved in their own learning will help them better understand and retain the knowledge. To do this, our two day session includes investigation activities where I provide many articles, books, and websites for the students to research topics in groups and present them to small groups in the class.
If you want to get into more detail regarding the principles, there is an interesting article on the Scrum Alliance website
and Bowman’s books:
