Regional Scrum Gathering Balkans 2023: Everything You Want to Know About Agile in Gaming But Didn't Have Anyone to Ask

There's less than a month left until one of the most significant Agile conferences in our region. The Regional Scrum Gathering Balkans invites you to an unforgettable event on November 16th and 17th at Madlenianum. This internationally recognized event will present Agile in a unique way.

While the Agile approach has successfully integrated into various IT and non-IT companies, what’s less known is that Agile principles are also being applied in video game development, alongside IT, telecommunications, banking, FMCG, and many other sectors.

This year, RSG Balkans introduces a new topic and space for discussion: the Agile approach to video game development.


In today’s fast-paced world of video game development, creating outstanding titles is increasingly challenging. Teams face constant challenges, changes, and unpredictable situations. The Agile approach isn’t just a methodology; it’s a compass that guides teams through challenges and unpredictability, providing tools and approaches that lead to exceptional results.


The answer to that question can be found on one of the three stages at Madlenianum, and your questions can be answered by Stefan Stojković from “Play Studios” with his topic: Game Development Playground – Navigating Change Through Continuous Improvement. Additionally, Saša Drinić, Aleksandar Sakač, David Vesović, and Nikolina Čeko from “Mad Head Games” will clarify your dilemmas in a panel discussion titled Sky High Peaks of Production Management in Game development.


Real-life examples and strategies for flexibility from Stefan Stojković from Playstudios

Game developers attending will gain insights into how Agile methodologies enhance game development by fostering creativity and efficiency in the process. The program we are preparing will focus on real-life examples, showcasing strategies for flexibility, rapid iteration, and the delivery of engaging games that delight players.

Participants can explore Agile practices and how they enable collaboration, synchronization, continuous improvement, and feedback, which are essential for building exciting games and products. The concepts we plan to share are applicable in various environments, making this event an intriguing opportunity for those looking to enhance their continuous improvement cycle and refine their game development skills and processes, says Stefan Stojković, Agile coach at „Play Studios“ and a speaker at this year’s RSG Balkans.


To better understand and embrace the novelties from the Agile world, we recommend listening to the following speakers:

Geoff Watts: The Lost Art of Mastery – Reigniting Excellence in Agile Development
Roman Pichler: Agile Product Roadmaps
Norma Acevedo: DevOps – Bridging the Gap in the Pursuit of Continuous Delivery Excellence
Christopher Bramley: Brace yourselves, the change is coming: How can leadership turn fear into
Vladimir Kelava: Culture eats everything for breakfast
Predrag Rajković: Elevate your product team – productivity, skills, motivation



Practices that matter, new perspectives, and trends from Mad Head Games 

With challenging projects behind us, like our first core game Scars Above launched in February 2023, and even more ambitious plans ahead, we at Mad Head Games are eager to share and learn.

 For us as project management professionals this conference will be an excellent opportunity to dive deeper into the highs and lows of game development and the application of agile methodologies across many industries.

We look forward to sharing what worked for us and discussing new perspectives and trends with leading experts in the field. says Saša Drinčić from „Mad Head Games“, a speaker at this year’s RSG Balkans.


With numerous topics that will stimulate additional questions and reflections, both conference days also offer a Coaching Corner where you can discuss specific dilemmas with the conference speakers. The moderator for this year’s Coaching Corner is the renowned Petri Heiramo, who can provide valuable insights into the world of Agile, which will be helpful if you’re encountering this topic for the first time.
