Abstract

In this 90-minute session, participants will complete a simple team assignment with restrictions that highlight the challenges of communication, collaboration, and coordinating stakeholders. Participants will build a structure out of Legos that must conform to design specifications and use available materials. Teams have defined roles for different members; all participants must operate within the limits of their roles and in the available time. After completing the exercise, we will debrief the experience as a group, discussing topics such as observed behaviors, unexpected challenges, and how team members collectively organize and solve problems. The activity mimics many workplace challenges common to project management.

Learning Objectives:

Attendees will:

  • Gain an understanding of the value of collaboration
  • Explore the benefits and challenges associated with collaboration
  • Develop a mindset of looking at the bigger picture: migrating from problem-solving in a silo to reaching out to other resources and understanding the larger system at play
  • Engage in problem-solving as a team
  • Observe their own behaviors in protecting or sharing information across teams
