Agile Games & Pecha Kucha Day

Have you ever used Planning Poker as a tool for estimation and enjoyed the dynamics of the resulting discussion? Then you have played an Agile Game!

Deloitte estimates that in 2012 over 70% of companies have used the concept of gamification in one way or another. Time Magazine even predicted that Gamification Will Rule The Business World.

Agile Games allow you to convey ideas or achieve specific goals and outcomes by creating a safe environment using gamification.

Join us if this interests you!

All profits from this event will be used to buy prizes to be won during the event!

We are still looking for people who want to run sessions. Contact Mikey if you have something you'd like to share with the community!

The event will take place at the office of our sponsor Sky in Osterley.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
