Finding the Formula for Your Team
The group will be split into teams and given a practical task to complete. This will take the form of creating a concept, simple design, materials requirements and prototyping. At each stage the teams will be asked to appoint a single spokesman to communicate with the 'customer' and be the single point of contact.
At the completion of protoyping the teams will be asked to demonstrate their working design to the main group. The prototype will be accepted or returned for futher work by the 'customer'.
The final aspect of the session will be a twist, which is designed to test the teams' communications abilities and help them to understand how effectively they worked together.
