Alpha State Card Game
Organizations often require teams to use a standard software development or application management lifecycle. Often these are defined in a way that overly restricts the freedom of the development teams, and focus on the specific work products to be produced rather than the results or state to be achieved. Using the Alpha State cards this can be done in a lightweight, result focused way that is independent of the practice that the team selects to achieve the goals.
Use this game to visualize your software development lifecycle to form a starting point for team planning.
