Innovation Games Online represents a breakthrough in how teams can collaborate online and in real-time to solve complex business problems.
Mountain View, CA – March 9, 2010. Enthiosys, the leading provider of agile product management strategy and consulting services, today announced that Net Objectives, the leading agile training/consulting company, has purchased the first Enterprise License for Enthiosys’s Innovation Games® Online. Net Objective’s purchase will allow its clients to use real-time, interactive, online games to solve complex collaboration problems, without the cost or complexity of bringing participants physically together.
“Net Objectives is pleased to be the first purchaser of an Enterprise License for Innovation Games Online,” said Net Objectives CEO Alan Shalloway, “Not only because it shows our own commitment to bringing the best methods in the industry to our clients, but because we believe that the Innovation Games represent a true breakthrough in how organizations collaborate to solve complex problems.”
Enthiosys launched Innovation Games Online in July 2009, and was highlighted in a recent Forrester report as a leader in the serious games industry for helping businesses “do work.”
Innovation Games Online currently includes two real-time Innovation Games, Buy a Feature Online and Prune the Product Tree Online, based on Luke Hohmann’s book Innovation Games: Creating Breakthrough Products through Collaborative Play. Buy A Feature brings together groups of users to collectively decide which product features are most valuable, while Prune the Product Tree lets participants collaboratively design visual representations of a product’s evolution. More online Innovation Games are in the works, and Net Objectives has also committed to co-create a new game, “Team Estimation,” for the Agile industry to help teams more effectively estimate user stories.
“We’re thrilled to have Net Objectives’ support for Innovation Games Online,” said Luke Hohmann, Enthiosys CEO. “Net Objectives has consistently brought leading principles and practices to its clients as they seek to maximize their return on their technology solution and software development efforts.
