Taking the Playing Lean experience online
The case of using a board game to teach Lean Startup remotely.
Well, this year started with a nice letter from Springer, notifying me they've published my latest article, Taking the Playing Lean experience online. It's included in the Learning in the Digital Era book.
Using games and simulations to teach various lean methods and approaches enables the teacher to increase student’s participation and identify each individual’s challenges. Given the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, most of the businesses and institution went into lockdown from early 2020, forcing the educators to deliver remote workshops. Playing Lean is a team-based board game in which players have to develop their business through iterative development and lean experimentation. The team that reaches early majority first—by crossing the proverbial chasm—wins. In this paper, the author explores how the game was adapted for teaching the lean startup method remotely.
