Most remote digital interactions suck along some axis or another, and it’s not because of the bandwidth or software. It’s because we haven’t figured out how to build a good experience within the terrain of the remote landscape.
This is why recently I’ve been attending remote events where the content doesn’t interest me; it’s because the context of what others are trying in the remote-interactions-space is interesting to me.
A TEI participant has offered to facilitate an online business simulation for us. I’m interested in this because it’s an opportunity for me to learn about a remote interaction style I haven’t experienced before. Additionally, the simulation – The Phoenix Project, a DevOps business simulation by GamingWorks – is a piece of digital IP they sell you for $1,000 per iteration and deliver by giving you access to a Miro board. That packaging and delivery model for IP is also fascinating to me, and I want to learn more about that.
Maybe some of this is interesting to you too? That’s why I’m writing about this. Our facilitator Luca and I are trying to recruit a few more people to do this simulation together.
You don’t need to know anything about DevOps, and if you, like me, are interested in getting firsthand experience with a business simulation delivered remotely, then this is a good opportunity to have that experience even if the topic of DevOps is uninteresting to you.
We need a minimum of 4 to make the simulation work properly, so the cost will be $1k/5=$250 per participant. Luca will figure out the scheduling for this half-day event, and he will handle payment (neither he nor I make any profit money on this; I’m recruiting for it because I want the experience and we need a group of 4 to make the simulation happen at all).
You can read more about the simulation itself here: https://www.gamingworks.nl/business-simulations/the-phoenix-project/
If you might be interested in participating in this simulation (time and date TBD based on what the group can do), please hit REPLY and let me know. If I get enough interest, I’ll pass your name and email along to Luca and he’ll do the scheduling and collect payment, and of course actually facilitate the simulation.
Keep building; keep taking risks y’all,
