A Multi-Team, Full-Cycle, Product-Oriented Scrum Simulation with LEGO Bricks.

The Small & Medium Business Edition.
Can be adapted to teach other iteration-based Agile frameworks.

It is proven that the game can be adapted to fit the particular needs of trainers and serve different sizes of audience.

A “standard” game is described below, but you are encouraged to adopt it to fit your particular needs.

Timing: 100-120 minutes

  • 100 minutes – when using fast team estimation techniques
  • 120 minutes – when using planning poker or other estimation tools

Group Size: 4-25 people

  • Ideal is 2-3 teams of 4-6 people (gives 8-18 people)
  • Can be extended with Scrum Masters

LEGO Boxes: a LEGO box for a team of 4-6 people

  • I use “Basic Brick Set #6177”
  • It takes four boxes for 20 people

    Hi there,
    I really like this exercise and so did many of my fellow students. Here is a video of my group doing a very similar exercise. Our voices are in German, no sub titles – sorry!
