Experience agility in 4h instead of just talking about it
This is an abstract.
Getting people excited about agility has its limits when talking theory. Experience agility with us in simulations instead – and things quickly start to become clear.
Simulation of agility says more than 1000 words.
In our workshops, you can experience agility in simulations practically. One hour of simulation says more than 1000 words about agility. Real life situations in fast motion give you the opportunity to play things through. This offers reflection points on typical work phenomena.
Conducted by two accredited Scrum and Kanban trainers.
Florian Groß is an Accredited Kanban Trainer of the Kanban University and Sascha Geßler is a Certified Scrum Trainer of the Scrum Alliance. This is profound Scrum and Kanban competence together in one simulation.
Three modules of four hours each. Online.
We have divided the simulations into three modules of four hours each. The three modules build on each other and take place regularly in sequence.
Module 1: Agility in the team
Experience getting started with agile ways of working. Experience what you can do concretely to bring work into the flow.
Experience the difference between push and pull system, overload and being focused ready.
Experience the difference between individual work and real teamwork.
Module 2: End to end coordination (builds on module 1)
Suitable for: Flight Level 2, program level in SAFe, agile scaling, collaboration between stream aligned/platform/enabling teams.
As soon as several teams work together on a solution or service, the question is: How can we coordinate end to end?
The simulations in this module make it possible to experience what it feels like when agile teams are already functioning individually, only the overarching bracket is missing.
We also experience multiple approaches to solutions - up to complex dependencies in partial deliveries between teams. Depending on your preference, we will jointly address overarching metrics and provide an introduction to the Kanban Flight Level metaphor.
Module 3: Strategic coordination (builds on Module 2)
Suitable for: Flight Level 3, Portfolio Level in SAFe, Leadership Team, Strategic Business Development.
Common alignment against corporate or divisional strategy is often a challenge.
This module is about how you can make strategy a reality.
If required, we address different objectives for teams and larger organizations here, e.g. using OKRs.

Sascha Geßler: "I like to design an individual simulation, e.g. as a retrospective in your team or for your Agile Release Train."
How we simulate work phenomena
Patrick Steyaert and Arlette Vercammen from Okaloa Flowlab have developed agile simulations in the form of board games. These simulations show the difference between traditional and agile working methods. They show the difference between push- and pull-based work, between overload and focus, one-on-one work and true teamwork, between rigid plans and responsiveness.
