Participants are given a series of objects hidden in a box or under a sheet. The sheet is lifted to reveal the objects for a few moments and each team member must write down as many of them as possible. When the time is up, the group members must come together and make an overall list, then check if and how many objects they have properly identified out of the total number.
The exercise is then repeated with another set of objects, but this time the team has time to get organised, dividing the tasks in order to recall more objects. Once the time is up, a further final discussion ensues to check how many objects were identified and compare the list with the one from the first activity. The sessions can also be repeated several times with mixed teams to underline the importance of each team member’s contribution to making the company dynamic and effective in the market.
