Warp Speed is a Group Juggle spin-off activity to focus on problem-solving
Extends the common Group Juggle icebreaker/name game to a team building
exercise by asking participants how fast they can pass the ball to
everyone (including saying names). Groups can tender a time and then
try to deliver. Push them to go even faster.
Use the set up & instructions as for Group Juggle, but probably not
Challenge the group to see how fast it can juggle one ball around the
whole group. Time the group, and ask them to "tender" for how fast
they think they can really do it.
Explain that the tender is like a business tender - they must put in a
really good bid, but they must be able to deliver.
Allow time for discussion and planning.
Then ask them what their tender is & then ask them to deliver it.
If they make it, then ask them to think again, because they undersold
themselves. Ask them to come up with a new tender which better
reflects their capabilities as a group.
If they don't make it, then ask them to discuss what went wrong, and say
you'll give them a second chance to make their tender.
Generally requires debriefing.
