Abstract

Pillar has designed a single-day agile project simulation that is engaging, education, provocative, and fun. We divide attendees into teams, and using a GUI-based Integrated Development Environment, each team spends most of the day in a stripped-down, complete agile project. This Simulation introduces concepts like time-boxed iterations, User Stories, collective estimation, commitment to a product owner for iteration scope, formal verification ritual at iteration conclusion, tracking velocity, and making results big and visible through burndown or burn-up charts. The exercise is designed to simulate not only how agile teams and practices work, but the inevitable challenges and hiccups that arise as teams attempt to adopt several such practices at the same time.
