Everybody likes the idea of playing games with stakeholders to gain better insights and make it more fun, but few people ever put it into practice. It is a fact that designing and facilitating an Agile research game is MUCH more powerful than the typical powerpoint (crutch) conversations we can fall into. It is time to rise up and be prepared for those golden opportunities when we are asked, "Hey, I've got this group of people (customers, prospects, salespeople, partners, developers, etc.) in today. Do you want to spend an hour with them talking about the product?"

What we need is a quick and easy formula to help us be ready, and confident, the formula will work! An EZ-Bake Oven for games!

Practicing a skill in a supportive environment builds confidence.  We will play a simple, yet powerful, Agile research game, practice designing our own games, and then actually play a few games in smaller groups. At the end, we will discuss design tricks and tips.
