Addictive Kanban Simulation by Vyacheslav Moskalenko
Addictive Kanban Simulation
Addictive Kanban Simulation is an exciting workshop to try Kanban practices while developing useful software for Martian enthusiasts using paper, pens and scissors. During the game each group will have a chance to design Kanban board from the scratch, define explicit rules and set WIP limits. We will try couple of roles. Martian Stakeholder will be responsible for generating and prioritizing business requests. Kanban Facilitator will collect useful statistics and metrics in order to keep team focused on improving their process. During the game we will have a chance to collaboratively improve the process, remove some wastes, revisit explicit rules and reduce WIP limits. After the game part we are going to have a 10 minutes wrap-up session for discussing what we have learned about Kanban. Additionally, all participants will have a chance to try and evaluate paper prototype testing technique.
Martian Kanban is based on the paper prototyping technique.

I have facilitated this workshop in my company with english speaking groups. In general I've got more positive feedbacks to this game comparing to Kanban Pizza or Kanban Lego.
