This Agile game is based on The Penny Game. I’ve seen it in various incarnations, but this is based on the original concept. Instead of simply showing how batch size affects throughput, this game has been heavily modified to give several additional lessons. Attendees can expect to learn about Agile’s roots in Lean manufacturing, batch size theory, single piece flow, being adaptive to change, quick feedback and communication.
Each round after the first is essentially optional, you can choose exactly which lessons you wish to deliver. This may be all of them for more experienced teams, or fewer for those new to Agile.
