Tasty Cupcakes: Games to Understand Agile Principles

If you are trying to adopt Agile principles within your team and wondering how to best share your knowledge so that the entire team has a common understanding of these principles, then Tasty Cupcakes might be a good place to look at.

The concept is based on the idea that individuals generally understand things much better when they are learning by doing. Don McGreal and Michael McCullough, the people behind Tasty Cupcakes, ran a session at Agile 2008 on how to use games and exercises to help improve our understanding of Agile principles and practices.

This repertoire of little games, sorted into 3 categories (Physical, Emotional and Impressional), can be a very nice resource for Scrum Masters or any other change agent willing to be a little creative when educating teams with Agile principles and practices.

Definitely on my list of things to try out!
