EUROPE'S GREATEST AGILE SOFTWARE TESTING FESTIVAL!

ScrumTale simulation game

The first Scrum simulation game where collaborative writing of a crime story is used for iterative product development.

The players simulate Scrum teams writing a crime story simultaneously using Google Docs. Collaborative story writing is very similar to software production: you need to be creative and act as a team.

ScrumTale is designed to teach the Scrum framework. It improves learning experience by simulating Agile product delivery while experiencing all Agile principles. This game is a perfect aid to practice all the elements of the Scrum framework: roles, events and artifacts.

The workshop participants will be split into two teams and each person will be assigned with a Scrum role: Developer, Scrum Master, Product Owner or Chief Product Owner. The goal for each team will be to write the greatest crime tale ever using the Scrum framework. The product delivery will be split into three sprints. Within each sprint, the players will practice Scrum events: sprint planning, sprint review and retrospective.

While playing the game, you will experience challenges with integration, quality and tools that are present during software development without the need of having a technical background. You can observe the mechanics of the Scrum during the stormy process of story writing.
