Tech Cities 2016 – The Agile Architecture Game

Coming up in February 2016 I’ll be facilitating the Agile Architecture game with my former colleague and game inventor Kevin Matheny.  We’ve used the Agile Architecture game within BestBuy.com to help project managers, business analysts, product managers, engineers, and others learn about the tradeoffs involved with long term software architecture choices.  It’s a fast way to learn about the hard choices that architects make every day.

One of the comments from a person at Best Buy that played the game was “It felt like work.”   This person was an architect so we felt like we got the game right.

Tech Cities 2016 is a conference sponsored by the Carlson School of Business to foster the vision of Minneapolis being the tech center of the North.

It should be a fun conference!
