As Jurgen Appelo is enjoying his summer holidays, the every Friday Active Players Meetup of the Shiftup - Qualified Agility & Innovation Professional program  https://shiftup.work/qualification/ was hosted by Molood Ceccarelli today.

As gamification is one way for team building that is quite efficient when it comes to improving the team’s work in AGILE environments, here some examples to look at - AGILE GAMES FOR TEAM BUILDINGhttps://apiumhub.com/tech-blog-barcelona/agile-games-team-building/. #4 on the list is The ball point game, as mentioned on the picture today. The original game is based upon people together in one room face-to-face, what is just not working like this in the current Corona situation 😥. Molood came up with "Game of circles" a remote-first online game inspired by the Ball Point Game, see https://remoteforever.com/game-of-circles-online-ball-point-game/ for all necessary details and an explaining video, worth checking 😉👍.

Having the session with Molood Ceccarelli https://remoteforever.com/about/ today was a lot of fun, a great way to learn about AGILE ways of working, team spirit and to start the weekend. Thanks a lot. https://kasperowski.com/podcast-39-molood-ceccarelli/
