Abstract

Slick® is a disruptive agile methodology based on Agile Scrum that offers clear and quantitative insight into any kind of innovative project. Thanks to the three main Slick® indexes, even non-technical managers can understand the progress of a project and define strategies to keep it on-track. We created the serious game Slick-farm to get through to Slick® and its benefits. We used the lean start-up methodology to create the game, we run through three different MVPs and we pivoted the wrong hypotheses based on feedback collected in the trial workshops. Applications of Slick Farm shows that the game is effective to communicate the benefit coming from Slick® as an Agile methodology used in an uncertain context and, even more, as a way of actively manage strict budget and risk control without losing in “agility”.
