Birdie-Birdie: a product-building simulation

by Alan Cyment

You and your team have just been hired by TopTop, the major toy manufacturer, in order to build the company’s next big hit, codenamed Birdie-Birdie. But beware: you have fierce competition. Other firms have been hired and only the one who delivers the greatest business value gets the check! Using only LEGO pieces, prepare to build, integrate and test, while you struggle to appease an increasingly demanding CEO.  Revel in self-organization, optimizing your process while building a complex product. A fast-paced product-building game that will take your Scrum skills to the limit!

I recently presented this session at the London Scrum Gathering 2011 and I thought it’d be a good idea to write a description of the game so that anyone can use it. I’ve used it in dozens of courses and I can say that satisfaction is guaranteed!
