@ The Speak Easy
WHAT THE HECK IS AGILE GAMES INDY?
Agile Games Indy is a brand-new monthly meetup, featuring a particular game that covers a concept that Agilists can learn and benefit from. We’ve designed these meetups to be informal, informative, and full of organic opportunities to gain insights from others in the Agile community.
Agile Games Indy is NOT a lecture series. Hands-on learning is not only suggested, it’s REQUIRED. There will be a slew of opportunities to meet other guests, and we promise you’ll get to know more about each than just names and titles. We’ll kick off with structured networking to get your brain flowing as to how we can together empower our efforts with Agile. We’ll then play the game, and lastly, talk about how you can apply what we’ve learned from the activity directly to your Agile teams and organizations.
5:30pm – 6:00pm | Focused Networking / Enjoy Resfreshments
6:00pm – 7:00pm | Game Time
7:00pm – 7:30pm | Decompress / Activity Follow-Up
Your ticket includes a beverage and food to chow upon to fuel your efforts.
This month’s activity: GAMIFICATION!
Wait…isn’t Agile Games Indy always about games?
Yes! You’re correct. But in previous meetups, we’ve developed a game for you to learn and develop your skills within Agile.
But what if you could lead the charge and feel more confident in your ability to gamify your efforts within your teams and organizations?
For this meetup, we’re going to be doing things a bit differently. This time, we will be showing you how to develop a custom game to bring back to your teams, no matter their size, needs, or dynamics.
Chris Daily, Managing Director of beLithe, will be facilitating this session in which you’ll go through the steps of how to first identify the needs of your team, then how to organize their empowerment, and lastly deciding what success looks like – in other words, where do you want to go?
During this edition of Agile Games Indy, we’re empowering you, our community, with the art of creating powerful and effective gamification! You’ll leave with a simple yet effective framework to be able to build games and bring fresh energy and perspectives to your Agile efforts.
ANOTHER MONTHLY MEETUP? WHY?
Agile Games Indy loves Agile, and we want to give you the opportunity to practice what you preach.
We believe that you don’t need a specific title to thrive within Agile, which is why these meetups are open to everyone, even those outside the Agile community. We all know that being a great leader in Agile has EVERYTHING to do with experience, embracing an iterative mindset that is always evolving and learning.
We also know that it’s hard to have genuine conversations with your peers within Agile. We tend to talk about WHAT we’re working on, but when do we have time to really dive in and truly get to know each other and our ambitions.
This is a meetup to get Agilists together to do what they do best – be Agile! Not network and schmooze just because.
WE want this to be more than just a monthly meetup about learning a particular exercise – we want you to benefit from Indy’s best and most dynamic resource for your growth: the Agile community.
Our goal: to provide individuals with insights through Agile games so that they can bring these games to their teams and empower their success now and in the future.
If you’re new to Agile, you’ll learn a lot. If you are currently in an Agile team, use this activity to bring your group together and increase comraderie. If you’re an Agile leader, you’ll feel more empowered to foster an environment of continuous improvement.
