Course Outline
  • Game Rules
    • Imagine you're a team of pizza chefs. 
    • Each pizza must be baked according to the following directions. Remember the customer has high quality standards!
  • Rounds
    • Each round will last 10 minutes.
  • Retrospective
    • Each retrospective lasts 5 minutes.
    • The retrospective is the time for the team to reflect on their process it uses to bake the pizzas and to come up with ideas on how to improve the process and increase quality of the pizzas.
  • Pizza Instructions
    • Make a pizza base (crust), add tomato sauce (red circle), add three slices of ham (pink circles) and add three slices of pineapple (yellow quadrangle).
    • The tomato sauce should cover the pizza crust and the toppings should be distributed evenly across the pizza.
    • There can only be a maximum of 3 pizzas in the oven at one time. Cooking time is at least 30 seconds. No adding or removing of slices while baking!
    • Produce as many pizzas as the team can while trying to avoid waste i.e. raw materials prepared but not used.
