Innovation Games® for Agile Teams
One of four core values of the Agile Manifesto is Customer collaboration over contract negotiation. At Conteneo, we like to shorten this just a bit and focus on collaboration: within a team, between teams, with customers, and with stakeholders. The most popular Agile method is Scrum – and Scrum is built on effective collaboration!
Effective collaboration is powered by goal-driven frameworks, with clearly understood roles, interaction models and an understanding of what the group is going to do with the results.
In this powerful one day, learning-by-doing certification workshop you will learn several essential frameworks to improve your Agile projects. Special emphasis will be placed on scaling collaboration to meet the needs of multiple Scrum teams and distributed Scrum teams.
Game Design Master Class
We’ve all been surprised when we learn that an unusual spice is the “secret ingredient” in a favored dish. And some of us wonder what might happen if we started to experiment with that spice – what might happen if we started to redesign existing recipes and design new dishes.
Our Game Design Master Class teaches the “secret ingredients” of serious, collaborative game design through hands-on use of the Collaborative Game Design Canvas™, a structured canvas that enables you to deconstruct existing games, extend them, and create new games.
After taking this class you will be able to create online and in-person collaboration frameworks to tackle complex business problems in strategy, competitive positioning, marketing and product development.
