About the session

Remote first is becoming the norm, and this is also true for new agile teams. Where you would previously organize one or more onsite in-person kick-off sessions to start a new team, these days a new distributed or hybrid team will have to be working online together from day one.

In this mini-workshop, we’ll use gamification to explore several tools and playing formats for chartering and starting up distributed agile teams to foster collaboration and team development.

Participant takeaways:

  • Learn about gamification as a way to start up teams and engage people in teams
  • Experience how culture mood boards can help teams define their own cultural values and traits
  • Play with psychological safety coaching cards to explore what can be done to increase safety
  • See how you can coach new teams and enable them to become productive from day one.
