The Story of our Sprints - Lee Fox

From the TastyCupcakes website, The Story of our Sprints is a great and fun way to conduct a retrospective.  It's interactive and can be quite thought provoking as it leverages player creativity.  

The game will have a team of people describing their past sprint in the form of a story in a pass-the-narration fashion. The team will not only tell the story, but try to find the symbolism and lessons learned from the story as well.  Best of all, when the game is over, the team will have an artifact to share about the sprint that is entertaining and easy to distribute.

Learning Objectives:

  • Obtain consensus of successes and failures of a sprint.
  • Discover new ways to examine the events of a sprint.
  • Discover creative ways to communicate with your team.


Kanban Pizza Game - Dhaval Panchal and Dave Sharrock

Kanban practices may seem simple, yet many teams struggle to get the most out of Kanban in their work. The Kanban pizza game helps participants learn how to apply Kanban in any scenario. During the game, the teams will iteratively discover the approach that works best for them. The facilitators will guide them through the use of Kanban principles and practices to visualize and refine that system in order to improve their team’s performance and reduce waste in their process.

Learning Objectives:

  • Experience Kanban emerging from an existing process
  • Experience the system, not just the board and mechanics
  • Learn how Kanban boards are context-dependent.
  • Understand the effects of limiting Work in Progress
  • Experience self-organization and adaptation
  • Have fun!
