Agile vs. Traditional Project Management - A Game-based Experiment

1.161 Aufrufe

Veröffentlicht am

The popular “Ballpoint Game” was utilized to tackle the question, whether a superior project approach exists.

The 2-years-experiment involved more than 1,000 participants - and led to a surprising result!
