Materials

  • 3 balls
  • any other objects
  • chart to visualise the results
  • stopwatch (smartphone)

Instructions

Start in a standing circle. Ask the participants to establish a process by throwing each other a ball in a specific order: 

∙ Each participant must receive the ball once 

∙ The ball must not be thrown to a neighbour 

∙ The process ends where it started Let the participants repeat the process until they feel comfortable to repeat it.

When the standard process runs well, intervene: 

∙ Make them speed up (competitors do not sleep!) 

∙ Add ball two and later ball three (we want to optimise the utilisation rate!) 

∙ Launch a "side project" – let them pass a random object clockwise. 

Debrief on topics connected to team, complexity, multitasking, productivity, failure culture or others. This game is a fast way to understand or even feel reasons why things do (not) go well in a company.
