The Marshmallow Challenge

The 'Challenge' is a fairly popular agile game. We're going to run it twice with a retrospective in between sessions to see how much learning and improvement we can create.

Join Bob Galen as he facilitates the Marshmallow Challenge. Learn what happens when you take 20 sticks of spaghetti (dry of course), one yard of tap, one yard of string, and one marshmallow and put a team of people together to build the tallest free standing structure.

This fun team building exercise will teach lessons in design, collaboration, innovation, and creativity.

Bring your imagination and sense of humor and let's see what everyone can build.

    Another example of why Bob is such an effective coach - very subtle. He let us work, then make key points for 10 minutes between exercise. Elegant simplicity.

    I enjoyed the meeting. No power point slides here. Was able to see some benefits of a retrospective.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
