An Introduction to Gamification – Building better teams using serious games

June 14, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

1024x576 IjdRmc.tmp An Introduction to Gamification - Building better teams using serious games

Our next in-person meetup is all about Gamification! Our speaker- **Todd Sussman** will be introducing us to some agile games. Looking forward to seeing you all!

**An Introduction to Gamification – Building better teams using serious games**
We have all been there, a company introduces agile and there is great excitement. This quickly turns into “Agile” (said in your most disgusting tone!). It might be because there isn’t sufficient executive sponsorship; however, more likely the team has fallen into the Cargo Cult trap (a Cargo Cult is characterized by the ritual inclusion of something that serves no real purpose). In this session, we will introduce the concept of serious games, the different streams of thought behind them, as well as play a few training games. These games can often pull teams out of their “ritualistic” mode of work back into real value.

**Speaker Bio: Todd Sussman, Sr. Agile Consultant** with **Matrix** **Resources**
**Todd** brings with him over 20 years of experience delivering solutions on various platforms. He has served in roles within an Agile delivery team such as QA, Developer, Architect and Product Owner. Todd uses those experiences to help individuals and organizations develop a Lean-Agile mindset.

Todd has worked across many industries including logistics and transportation, healthcare, hospitality, and government. Both domestically and internationally, this has allowed him to form a sense of trust and true empathy for the individuals going through the transformation within their own context. He believes, by listening to clients and understanding their challenges that we find an approach that leads to better technical and business agility.

Todd recently moved back to the East Coast from Phoenix AZ with his wife and 2 kids. While not working, you can find him enjoying the outdoors with his love of hiking and mountain biking, as well as an expensive addiction to woodworking. You can find Todd facilitating some serious games on YouTube under The Agile Game Network – [https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClIG9aELGTrm2SmmjiK2jZg](https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClIG9aELGTrm2SmmjiK2jZg)
