This book is written for:

  • Scrum Trainers exploring way of adding more elements of interactivity and gaming into the trainings turning them more to “from the back of the room” kind of things.
  • Agile Coaches looking for new training and coaching ideas with some elements of serious plays and simulations.
  • Scrum Masters willing to get ideas how to introduce agile thinking to new teams and newcomers in a fun and easy way.
  • Professors and Teachers trying to adapt their teaching style to the ever-changing world that is full of games, fun and LEGO.
  • Anyone else who is in charge of "installing Agile thinking and Scrum in a workspace".

lego4scrum 3.0 incorporates the following popular agile coaching techniques:

  • user story mapping
  • magic estimates
  • overall backlog refinement with multiple teams
  • joint multi-team scrum meetings
  • continuous integration and deployment
  • and more little tips and tricks to make the simulation valuable and fun.
