Massive Agile Cross-Coordination Simulation Game (Season Tanner)

Digital transformations create a need for large-scale Agile initiatives to find ways to manage the dependencies they have amongst themselves. In State Farm's Digital Transformation, the number one question that Executives, Directors, and Product Managers asked was: how will we manage dependencies with each other in this new operating model?
The simulation is a puzzle-based exercise that focuses on identifying the problems associated with coordination across large, cross-cutting Agile efforts—along with possible solutions to managing those dependencies. It is fondly known as "The Puzzle Game" within State Farm's walls. Not only will this game help you gain a deeper understanding of the size and complexity of the problem--you will also walk away from this workshop with ways to solve those complex problems and a set of instructions for how run this same simulation in your own organization!

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand the size and complexity of managing dependencies across multiple Agile efforts in a large organization
  • Identify antipatterns when managing those dependencies
  • List of potential solutions in alignment with the 12 Principles of the Agile Manifesto
  • Receive facilitation instructions for how to run the simulation in your own organization
