The Agile Ball Point Game is a fun and exciting way for development teams to explore process flow and gain insights into team interactions. Over the last year, I have administered the Agile Ball Point Game with elementary children, high school young adults and professional adults. Watching and observing these interactions has provided valuable insights in how teams interact, how teams should be structured and what works on teams.

This session will explore and introduce the Agile Ball Point Game, followed by an analysis of what was learned from playing this game with others. Topics will include the significance of suggestion, the value of diverse team composition and the importance of unconventional thinking on teams. The value of micro-optimization will be explored.

Additionally, the concepts of agile gaming will be introduced and expanded on.
