Abstract

In a globalized world and constantly updating economic and technological activities, engineers should develop competences related to their professional practice. Initial training in higher education institutions is the key to achieve that purpose. Project Management is one of the many necessary areas for engineering students, and Scrum is one of the most used project management frameworks. Lego4Scrum is a simulation with small blocks to build collaboratively and deliver products that use teamwork efforts. This work is an exploratory study with preliminary results focused the level of training participants’ involvement. This paper is described a training with engineering students using Lego4Scrum framework, the psychological states of Flow and the first two levels of New Model Kirkpatrick Model. The results were the training experience chart and the training evaluation using Kirkpatrick levels’ evaluations. Some results found were the level of participants’ involvement to build the products permits the maximum capacity of people motivation with high attention and fully invested in the task, and the participants felt confident in apply the knowledge obtained in the workplace.
