Affinitas, Kohlfurter Str. 41/43, Berlin
An Open Space to explore games in business
This open space workshop is for everyone* to learn about agile while having fun and playing games, to improve facilitation skills by hosting a game session or to find peers to design a new game. The agile game lab is special since we try to bring agile people and game developers together to have an evening full of creativity and fun.
Bring a game you like to try out
Games and simulations are useful tools to experience agile practices, to communicate complex problems and to learn how to apply agile and lean thinking to solve them. They are also a great way to explore an issue at work, e.g. how to get rid of command and control, improve flow etc. Don't be shy and bring your own game idea to find out if it works while playing with peers or try out facilitating a game that you are not yet familiar with - or just join a session and learn from others. We have some basic moderator materials but please bring anything you need to host a session.
Announce with a post what you like to play
