If you are a scrum mater, agile team member, agile change agent, coach or interested in anything Agile, this event should not be missed.  

Please visit Agilekc.org for a map or to register for this event.

Topic:  Agile Games

 

Key Learning: 

A lot of research and information is available about how we learn as adults.  It's probably not surprising that as we age, the patterns and ways in which we take in and retain new information as adults is very different than how we did it as kids.  What may be surprising is the fact that combining the learning with game play is even more effective for adults than kids.  It could be that we just don't play enough games as adults, or it could be that by learning via game play we can establish and\or bypass neural pathways in our adult minds that make the activity more effective.  Either way, this month is about playing games. 


Description: 

This session will be a joint Agile KC and KC Agile Gaming Meet Up.  
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own game ideas this month. The group will vote to prioritize which games will be played. However, if you have a tough problem to solve at work, feel free to post a question here (or direct message us) and we will see if we can bring a game to address that need!

Thanks to those who attended the session.  I was out of town, but from what I hear it was another great learning experience around Agile Games.   If your organization is interested in learning more about how gaming theory can be part of continuing education and daily working environment reach out to Jenny Tarwater at je...@blueshiftinnovation.com

Also, a heart felt thank you to the evening's sponsor Adaptive Solutions Group.  Here's how they describe what they do:

Adaptive Solutions Group is a local provider of information technology and information systems personnel. We provide a wide variety of technical professionals available for contract, contract to hire, or direct placement positions. Software and applications development, web-based resources, help desk/desktop support, LAN/WAN specialists, and operations specialists are examples of our workforce ready for hire.


Since our founding in 2002, we've structured our services around prioritizing people – both our clients and our consultants.  The difference is noticed and appreciated in the markets we call home, Kansas City, St. Louis, Dallas and Denver.
