In this example, we can see that the team temporarily failed at the ‘game’; remember that the goal was to “make the most accurate prediction of how much we can deliver in a limited time-period”. However this failure is not dramatic. It is actually a great opportunity to improve for next time and to uncover issues before they become a big problem.
