Teams have 14 pieces of plastic shelving with groves cut in various places, which enable them to fit together and make up a display shelf.
They have up to 60 minutes to develop a method of assembly that can produce a finished display shelf in less than 30 seconds.
Teams find it very difficult, but through planning and effective teamwork, it has been done in 15 seconds!
We also provide instructions and team briefing notes to run this activity different ways, including having a planning team and an implementation team. See how well they (should) work together and discover many learning points that can be used in the workplace.
Effective planning, performance management and continuous improvement, teamwork and the ability to work in small sub-groups are essential to be successful.
This training game highlights the importance of individual contributions to group task achievement. It is also very effective for drawing out the characteristics of effective management and leadership.
You can also use this as a fun activity by seeing which team can complete it quickest. They will soon learn “More haste, less speed” and “Failing to plan is planning to fail!”
If you think this is easy – you try it. There is a lot to learn from this!
The original large Shelving measures 105 cm x 95 cm and the half-size Tabletop version measures 53 cm x 48 cm. The small shelving is just as challenging, but easier to transport and teams can try it on a smaller surface.
The focus of shelving is on developing teamwork, but this exercise also brings out these useful training areas:

Display Shelf training game is also known as Planks, Gridlock and Shelving Exercise. Our version is made from plastic which is lighter and cleaner.

“The general feedback on our conference was ‘one of the best yet!’ I think that using starting the day with the Crime Squad really helped relax people into the day and I think they all found the Hotel exercise both challenging and rewarding and having you run the afternoon enabled us to see how the delegates actually worked together. Thanks to you and your team for helping make our conference a success.
The challenge for us is now to come up with something different for next year so any suggestions would be appreciated.”C. Garrett – Selwood
