In Out of the Box participants enter the room to discover that the space is empty apart from a number of large wooden crates. Each crate folds out into a large display stand and inside they find details on a given issue together with supporting material and props. Each team’s task is to create a display on the stand that addresses the issue and present their analysis, findings and recommendations. Once completed each display is brought to life with a live presentation, discussion and feedback session.
Out of the Box is an ingenious way to generate fresh ideas and stimulate open and frank discussion around key issues in a relaxed informal and creative way. A great way of stimulating innovative and creative thinking. It also is a great way of practising clear, concise and considerate communication when discussing and debating issues. Time is short so teams must use their initiative and be resourceful with the materials to hand.
This activity can been designed to adhere to physical distancing guidelines. We modify the program to avoid game materials and handouts that need to be passed between participants. And, avoid anything where you have to get too close! Our skilled facilitators will be there to guide your participants throughout the experience, ensuring that as well as keeping to social distancing protocol each participant is engaged and having an enjoyable learning experience. Get in touch to find out how we can customise this experience for physical distancing and your team.
This was a fantastic way of getting the innovative spark going in all involved. We have seen a marked improvement on team dynamics - an increase in willingness of people to listen to the ideas of others. All great outcomes.
