Kanban Pizza Game at DARE 2013

Kanban Pizza Game by agile42 at DARE 2013 on Saturday 15th June - Antwerp Belgium

Get the chance to play with us!

I am happy to announce that Saturday, June 15th I will be at the Lean & Kanban conference DARE 2013 in Antwerp with the Kanban Pizza Game.

Nick Oostvogels, one of the organizers of the conference, describes DARE 2013 as “a conference for those brave souls who want to change the ordinary and take changes. A place to get fresh ideas how to turn your business into a success.”
So I am sure that this is the right place where play to our Kanban Pizza Game ;-) 
 
We invented the Kanban Pizza Game a year ago  with the purpose to teach the principles of Lean and Agile in an effective and fun way. 

In the Kanban Pizza Game, you will experience firsthand the benefits of a Kanban System, by simulating the frantic pace of ordering pizza. While other Kanban Games usually focus only on the flow of an existing Kanban System, the Kanban Pizza Game demonstrates the path from an existing process to a Kanban System and starts right where you are.

Kanban helps you to:

  • Put a focus on delivering value quickly and effectively;
  • Address problems with queues and bottlenecks;
  • Facilitate interactions between people;
  • Keep focusing on the system as a whole.

 

You will learn to use the five basic practices of Kanban (Visualize the workflow, Limit WIP, Manage Flow, Make Process Policies Explicit & Improve Collaboratively) and at the end understand how Kanban and its evolutionary approach to change can be applied to software development.

 The game is fun, the activity level stays high and it offers a complex simulation that includes changes in flow, while the difficulty progresses.

I believe that playing is an integral and very effective part of learning, as it opens people's minds and hearts and creates the emotional connections that makes experiences stick. And we have experienced that the right games help people to discover, experience, and greatly accelerate learning.
