The DevOps Expansion Pack is a PDF with images for 26 cards with statements and playing instructions covering DevOps principles and practices. It has been developed by Ben Linders and Berry Kersten. This pack should be used together with the Agile Self-Assessment Game.
Playing the Agile Self-assessment Game enables teams to reflect on their way of working and agree upon the next steps for their agile journey. With this game, they can discover how agile they are and what they can do to increase their agility to deliver more value to their customers and stakeholders.
Supported Agile Frameworks
Specific agile frameworks are supported with expansion packs with additional cards. Currently, the following packs are available:
There also a Polish edition of the DevOps Expansion pack.
More frameworks will be added in the future (there will be a draft of the Kanban pack available soon).
This is what people say after playing the game:
The cards help to get the team out of the daily work and daily mindset.
This is a wonderful way to get your team talking about how they are “being” agile!
The game really did add value and I got some real insight into the thoughts of people.
Ben’s Agile Assessment game is easy to adopt and easy for teams to pick up.
We realized our agile maturity level, recognized actionable improvements and had great fun and insights!
Playing the game builds clarity and alignment on what Agile means to everyone on the team and helps team members meaningfully evaluate their agility.
It’s a great tool to use for a retrospective.
