Who said work can't be fun, let's play some games!

Do you have difficulty convincing management that waterfall isn't the only way to develop products?

Do you have challenges trying to adopt engineering best practices with development teams?

Do you want people to fully understand the power of the ceremonies of Scrum?

There are some great games out there that can be used with your teams that either haven't started or are well on their way to agility. We are going to play a few of my favorites that can bring about that "Aha" moment for understanding the power of agile and/or the benefits of engineering best practices.


Brian Sjoberg comes from sunny Florida where he earned his Computer Engineering degree from the University of South Florida. He is a former XP programmer, turned Project Manager, turned Program Manager, turned Agile Coach. He recently acquired his CSM and CSPO. He has been living on the front lines of implementing Scrum and engineering best practices for the past 4 years.

His motto: “Coaching teams to rapidly deliver high quality products that customers love.”
