Serious Games for Collaboration and Market Research
Innovation Games® are serious games that can be used to deliver cost-effective market research for Agile teams and super-charge the product planning process. Based on the book of the same name by Luke Hohmann, Innovation Game® power innovation by enabling you to better understand your customers. This course will help you gain a better understanding of how to apply these games within the context of an Agile development process. While there is a lot to love about Agile development, many practices can get pretty tiresome. Retrospectives stop working when teams become bored with answering the same three questions (“what worked, what didn’t work, what should we change?”). Prioritising a product backlog in a single meeting before, or during, release planning using a spreadsheet isn’t very engaging. Developing and presenting a product roadmap using PowerPoint gets pretty old, especially when you can’t find a way to show the growth in functionality of your product.
Key Learnings: In this course, we will show how Innovation Games® can be used to improve many of the practices that are common in Agile teams. Beginning with an overview of Innovation Games, you will learn how to:
• Identify customer requirements for an ideal product through Product Box
• Improve retrospectives with Speed Boat
• Prioritise your backlog through the online game Buy a Feature Online
• Plan a successful project through the game Remember the Future
• Develop better release plans with Prune the Product Tree
• Understand product usage with Me and My Shadow and Start Your Day
Agile should be fun! And when you integrate the games described in this class into your Agile practice, it will be.
• All members of Agile teams with a focus on product planning, product development and product management.
• Anyone who wishes to create more innovative product and service offerings.
Benefits: Upon completing this course participants will have played several Innovation Games that they can use to work together as a team and directly with customers to better understand their needs. They will also have reference materials to additional techniques beyond the ones used in the presentation. Course Outline:
• Discussion of Innovation Games and Market Research
• Planning, playing, and post-processing Innovation Games
• Multiple case studies and game play
• Review and shared discussion; helping participants plan their adoption of these techniques

Prerequisites: Experience in Qt development and mobile platforms The course level is Intermediate
The course is targeted to developers who are already familiar with Qt to gain insight on the newest features on Qt development for mobile devices, especially on the Symbian platform with N8. During the course we will cover the most important aspects on general overview level but we will also go into deeper, developer-kind level in many technical details―in order to get a really good kick start on actually starting to work with mobile Qt projects.
Day 1 concentrates on the updated status and engine level support by going through the new Qt Mobility APIs in-depth and also discussing on porting issues.
Day 2 then concentrates solely on the UI side —how to get that “WOW-effect” for your touch UI devices? Also, we will take a deeper introduction to QtQuick, the new Qt User Interface Creation Kit in Qt.
Course delivery method
The course includes hands-on exercise sessions that take approximately 50% of the course time.
Mobile Qt application developers going to use the latest features of Qt in their mobile projects.
