Let's "flip pennies"!!! Literally!!! This is a beautiful game to be played to understand agile values and how it is different from traditional methodologies. The game proves live, with metrics, how agile helps bring out value, leverage peoples time by working parallel, bring focus by working on something small, is lean by keeping WIP minimum and not only reduces time to market but also the overall time of the project!!!!


An open mind and willingness to learn!!! :)
