Webmaster ® can be used with three small sub-teams or one large team and can be used either in or outdoors.
This apparently simple activity makes great demands on teamwork! Team members are required to work out how to assemble a set of coloured metal and rope components to make a structure which is identical to a black and white design pattern that they have received.
There is only one answer to the problem and this has to be established through a process of logic and some trial and error. Detailed planning at this stage is ineffective as the theories must be tested in practice at an early stage.
The structure is built from three separate sections which interconnect. This means that a single team can work on all of the sections together from the beginning, or it allows for three sub-teams to work remotely in the early planning stage, only coming together at the final point of assembly.
Once the assembly is complete, the team must develop and rehearse a strategy for taking the structure to pieces and re-building it accurately against the clock in a tightly controlled 2-minute time-trial. As the pieces cannot be marked or pre-sorted they need to have a well-developed plan for identifying components and using manpower efficiently if they are to succeed.
The activity represents any workplace task in which a lengthy process of planning, decision-making and rehearsal must be undertaken before the project is delivered or ‘goes live’.
