The simulation gives participants a hands-on experience of using some of the core Agile patterns taught in the XAPP course, including:
Scrumban, a method which combines Kanban, the first and simplest Lean method, with the collaborative ceremonies that gave Scrum its form. It replaces the weaker aspects of Scrum with one-piece flow, continuously pulling backlog items into a “done” state rather than pushing new work into progress to maintain needless sprint commitments.
Sprints and Squads, which break down large and complex delivery challenges into self-managing teams operating in short time-boxed iterations to maximise feedback and learning.
Reviews and Retrospectives, the key Agile ceremonies which ensure stakeholder feedback and create double-loop learning cycles.
Work in Progress (WIP) limits which help reduce bottlenecks and ensure teams deliver finished (“done”) features rather than a myriad of unfinished pieces of work.
Cumulative Flow Diagrams to provide a continuous view of workflow across multiple teams per stream.
Previous knowledge is not required. Even if these practices are new to you, fun is guaranteed.
