Lean with lego
I'm at XP2009 this week, the sun is shining, the sea is blue and the italians are disorganized. I'm having a great time so far. This morning I was at a workshop led by Danilo Sato and Francisco Trindade - 'The lego lean game'. The idea was that we should learn about lean principles by playing with lego. I thought it was good fun, and we did learn quite a bit about pull, kanban and continuous improvement. I hope I will be able to run this simulation for some of my colleagues, I think it is a good practical way of learning using all the senses, not just reading books or listening to presentations. Much more kinesthetic.
