Self-organization: using a game to show how it emerges within a team

This is a very lively example of using #gamification in #Vodafone. It shows the self-organization emerging within a team. Turn the volume up :).

One might think, at a first look, that using a game is not helpful, because it doesn’t map a “real” work environment.

We agree to disagree with that point of view.

When using a game to teach/demonstrate/have the participants walk a mile on this new pair of shoes, we focus on the skills/concept/technique on what we are providing coaching/training. Here we are focusing on self-organization.

We gain that focus by leaving out everything which is not relevant.

Ricardo J Mestre Lda is providing #ICAgile Agile Coach Certified trainings in Berlin and Lisbon during March. Have a look at what the training is about in our site.
