Map and Directions
This is the first public opportunity to experience Diggers™, a revolutionary coaching workshop where you can learn about Agile, Lean, and DevOps ways of working and managing fro all parts of the enterprise, through the fun and immersive experience of a simulation game where we build little Lego® diggers/excavators. (It's not an IT theme, so the experience is accessible whether you work in government, manufacturing, retail, HR, sales, or technology in any industry sector).

Location will be in central Wellington, New Zealand.

Learning is far more effective when you touch and interact with a system instead of just hearing theory.

Very few Agile/Lean learning simulations give you the opportunity to see how management changes as well as the work, but this one does!!

And even fewer game experiences are actually an agile workshop experience themselves.   We walk the walk: 
  • the day is iterative and incremental, working to a cadence, with regular time for reflection and replanning.
  • the simulation "story" is different every time as the facilitator responds to the learning experience and ideas of the participants, so that we collaboratively explore the ideas of Agile, Lean, Devops, and other New Ways Of Working.
  • every workshop is an experiment, where the facilitator and participants invent new aspects of the game as we go.
The result is an intense, immersive, accelerated, fun learning experience; the most powerful day of training you will ever have on the New Ways Of Working And Managing.

Benefits for you:

  • understand what serious-play learning looks like: simulation games
  • test-drive this particular workshop to evaluate its potential
  • learn about new ways of working: Agile, Lean, Devops...
  • learn about new ways of managing (I'm not aware of any other training that does this)
  • meet 20 other like-minded Wellington folk (numbers are capped so register soon)

We try not to call Diggers a game, although it certainly involves serious play for learning. And it uses toy bricks.
But a better term is a simulation. Diggers is not a game with a fixed set of rules and structure, it is a coaching event with work simulation tools built around a factory making diggers (excavators).

It is a simulation tool to support a lean/agile coach in taking 12-20 people on a journey of work improvement, exploring new ways of working.


Diggers is always an experiment. We tailor the scenarios according to what the organisation wants to learn: customer value, product vs project, lean flow, organisation, creativity, servant leadership, governance controls etc... There are (currently) 34 modules to be played at will.

In this workshop we will go from Project Mode to Lean Factory Mode to Agile Continuous Delivery.  You will do the work and feel the difference.
