This is one of our decision making games in which the team will improve their decision making skills by making choices under time pressure.
The trainer guides the team into a fantasy. You tell them their airplane crashed and they are on an uninhabited island and have to decide unanimously what objects they take from the burning airplane. In the second part of the exercise they have to decide who is going to survive and will stay alive. Because of the time pressure of ten minutes the team learn how to effectively make choices. During the exercises the trainer can apply variations to the exercise:

Variation 1:

When the group is big than you can arrange the group into smaller groups with around five persons.

Variation 2:

When you are doing the exercise with more smaller groups you can, after the exercise has finished, mingle the groups and do the exercise again. But now with a 5 minute time limit, instead of 10!

Variation 3:

After the fantasy exercise is played you can tell the team to make real decisions in the same manner. So also come to a decision within ten minutes. For example: what kind of team day they are going to do. This will help them to come up with a decision without very long doubting about the pro's and con’s of a decision. You can also give them a consequence when they didn't make a decision within the ten minutes. For example that they have to watch a bad movie for three times in a row!

Do you know a good variation?
