The Lego Flow Game

Karl Scotland and Dr. Sallyann Freudenberg will run the Lego Flow Game.

The Lego Flow Game is a fun exercise to compare and contrast different approaches to processes, with respect to how work flows. The aim of the game is to build Lego Advent Calendar items, with a defined workflow: finding the next advent calendar number (analysis), finding the matching set of lego pieces (supply), creating the lego item (build) and checking the item has been built correctly and robustly (accept). There are specialist roles for each stage in the workflow – analysis, suppliers, builders and acceptors – as well as an overall manager, and some market representatives. The game is run three times, each for a different type of process – batch and phase driven, time-boxed and flow-based.

    Hi Karl,
    Looking forward to this event. At last night's event you mentioned a few other games (one with 20ps) - do you have any links?
    Thanks :)
