By approaching the learning through a serious game, we invite participants to play and experiment with their ideas.
Through the following game structures, the game is a cooperative design requiring participants to communicate and adapt to the changing environment.
- A very clear goal
- Save Cows from Earth to Mars
- Very clear rules
- Iteration based game play with a backlog of items to be delivered
- A way to track progress
- Visual Management Board
- Opt-in participation
- Game participants choose their roles
The game debrief provides opportunities for reflection and discussion of participants and facilitators observations.
