Focus on process improvement, leadership and teamwork, working together to optimise your continuous improvement, problem solving and time management skills
How do you make a company more efficient? That's the task facing the team.
A company has hired a team of consultants (your team) to help to improve the performance of the production process at their factory. But there's a problem. In order to get the production line working 30 icons (plastic cards) on a large floor-mounted touch screen monitor must be touched in sequence.
To complicate things further, the sequence can change when a different product is being manufactured.
Not surprisingly, the process is taking too long and impacting on productivity. Teams must find a quicker more efficient solution.
This creative continuous improvement game is easily adapted to focus on different key skills, such as leadership and teamwork. The Trainer's Guide and Team Briefing Sheets offer several possible options of running the game, including:
The facilitator appoints a small team as managers and a bigger team as their staff
On the first attempt, the team will usually get one person to touch all the cards, while the rest of the team stand along the outside of the screen pointing to the next card in sequence. To get the lowest time, the team will need to work together and share responsibility for touching the cards. This is more difficult because of the coordination of effort. However, the time will be much better.
Key training goals:
“We use it time and time again for different training courses. So adaptable for continuous improvement, teamwork and leadership.”
"As you recommended, we use observers and they come up with the points that we as facilitators would. Thank you for another of your wonderful training games."
"So much learning comes from this game; it always goes down well. We also use it with people who do not speak English, so all we do is brief them verbally; they do not have to read anything."
