Workshop (3h): In agile mission to Mars
With agile methods to Mars! The task is both an introduction to agile methods and a Scrum simulation. Three groups per 60 minute session compete against each other.
Each group consists of a Product Owner (ti&m coach), a developer team (programming), model builder team (design and construction) and surface designer team (construction of the ramp, terrain and garage). The 3 teams each build a Mars robot according to requirements from the backlog.
Iteratively, the teams approach the demanding requirements: Example: driving curves, reversing, overcoming 45° inclines, avoiding obstacles, etc. This task is not easy to solve and can only be successfully completed thanks to the agile approach and ongoing motivation. Communication, creativity and team spirit is the key to success here.
