The Akeakami Quest is a multiplayer online agile game base learning that unlocks the potential of your team. Combined with Agile practices, the game can improve the focus, commitment and motivation of your team. It encourages and develops open communication and problem-solving skills, builds trust and respect, and helps teams to achieve a level of quality that they may not have been able to reach alone.
- Multiplayer: allows any team member located anywhere on this earth to join their team in a fun environment.
- Observer mode: as a manager, trainer, or coach you can quietly observe your team and monitor their progress
- Reward System: to keep your teams coming back for more, on completion of a level they are rewarded a badge level. In addition to badge levels, they will obtain badges for being the “Best Thrower”, “Best Catcher”, and “Most Helpful”. When the team gets to collaborating they will earn the “Team” badge, and when they are coordinated they will earn the “Synergy” badge.
- Score System: to challenge your teams! Get your teams’ competitive juices going and get company wide momentum with a face off, displaying the teams with the highest scores. And or promote those teams that have reached the “Team or Synergy” badge.
- Scorm: the game will communicate what badges have been earned by your teams, what level they have met, and if they completed the team building course.
- Team Building Course: to wrap all of this in a nice bow, we created this team building guide for your team, scrum master, technical lead, sales manager, and etc. And if that is not enough, we added templates for team norms, and definition of done.
