Lean and Agile Games
Learning about Lean and Agile is often done best through some games. Lean and Agile games provide an opportunity for teams to grasp lean and agile concepts and practices, share experience, realise better ways of working, and help facilitate your ‘aha’ or ‘Lightbulb Moment‘.
And they are fun!
Below is a short collection of Lean and Agile game resources you might want to try with your teams:
- Scrum Penny Game
- TastyCupcakes.com – great site
- The Business Value Game
- XP Game
- Kanban Games
- Lean Simulations
I have found watching David Joyce conducting Dr W. Edwards Deming’s Red Bead Experiment which sheds light on systems thinking and quality to be very entertaining. Here’s a video of David running the experiment at Agile Sydney.

Growing up with Lego, some of my favorite games are to do with Lego.
