What we're about

We're getting together to talk about games, try them out, find new ones, and develop facilitation skills that beat the pack. We believe that gamification of agile and lean methods can help transmit, refine and develop the lean agile mindset and generate a deep understanding for you and your teams.

We plan to meet bi-monthly in central London to talk about, and play, serious games for lean agile thinkers and practitioners.
