Purpose of this game
๏ understanding the basic principles of the Agile Culture and understanding behavior
I don’t know.
What would we
Hey Lamb, I was thinkin’ we
should open a Restaurant.
How about Lamb Awarma?
the main story
No Thanks, I’d be
committed, but you’d only
๏ the chicken only gives their eggs
๏ Lambs have to put their flesh on the table
๏ They are involved, enganged to the project. In Scrum, it’s the purpose
of the Scrum Team (Delivery Team, Scrum Master and Product Owner).
๏ They are committed to the work. They are working in a sheepfold with
other lambs who love their work.
๏ When Agility is well set, they are all willing to put they « flesh-on-the-set
» each day because they feel ownership of the work.
๏ They are assertive and accountable for the success of the project and
have a majority (if not all) of their performance goals linked directly to
the success of the project and their specific Agile team.
๏ They come and go on the project.
๏ While chickens are mostly helpful, because
they are contributing their eggs, they don’t
always understand the full context because
they are not a dedicated team member.
๏ So occasionally they may accidently
contribute a rotten egg.
๏ They are not accountable for the success
of the project, although they may have a
small portion of their performance goals
linked to the success of the project.
๏ They like to stealthily move into and through
the team seeing who has certain skills and
๏ Then they like to steal not only resources
(Agile team members) for their own teams,
but they also steal ideas.
๏ They are not necessarily negative, because
they are often so quiet in their manipulative
๏ They are dedicated to their own success.
๏ They like to fly around the project and not really contribute in any manner.
๏ They enjoy “talking” (mostly hearing themselves speak) and pretend they are adding value,
but they are only annoying the lambs (Agile team members).
๏ Often, they like to swoop in so it can look like they are involved (and they’ll tell others this).
๏ They are often quite negative, squawk a lot in a “know it all” manner, and often poop on
people and their ideas. ¶R
๏ They are deceiver types who will use the trust of the team to gain insight
into topics so they can then “rat” on what is going on to others.
๏ Often on Agile teams, they are really deceivers because they are really
anti-Agile or just plain negative people.
๏ They often know the decisions that are made based on certain contexts
that the team is in, but will twist the truth in order to bring the project
๏ It is important to identify these deceivers as quickly as possible and get
them off the team. ¶R
๏ They are a lazy type on an Agile team
that really do not pitch in but instead like
to sleep instead.
๏ They are almost purposefully not
assertive, have been used to just
“getting by” on projects for years, and
are not really interested in feeling
ownership of the work.
๏ They typically neither positive nor
negative and simply like to be left alone.
๏ The other team members will begin to
notice this behavior and realize they are
not really interested in becoming part of
๏ They are command-and-control types who think
they can continue to tell their folks what to do
even though they are dedicated to their Agile
๏ Sometimes referred to as bullies, they charge
right into the team and attempt to direct them to
their own work and often deviate the team from
building product functionality.
๏ Typically, they are not interested in the Agile
mindset because they see it as a challenge to
their authority (technical or managerial) or don’t
really understand or care about the business
benefits of Agile, but instead want to maintain
their own status. ¶R
๏ And finally no farm is complete without the Shepherd Dog.
๏ However, on an Agile farm, it cannot be just any Shepherd Dog but instead a
benevolent Shepherd Dog who is good to his animals and ensure the animals have
what they need to grow and prosper.
๏ The Agile Animal Shepherd Dog encourages, inspires, and allows for team autonomy
and self organization.
