LeSS conference 2016: building a “Potentially Publishable Product”

This was the first conference where i had to work in a team to build a “Potentially Publishable Product”

Our team was called “BLeSSed Scrumbags”

The “Potentially Publishable Product” was a game.

We added all the team learning of the 2 day conference on stickies. Then we had players choose 7 of these learning that they could take with them to “Scrumbag Island”

As soon as the player was done we’d made a picture so that the player would have his key learning saved.
