Key Types Of Team Problem Solving Activities


Team Problem Simulations

Delta uses a wide variety of Team Problem Simulations from paper-based 'Survival Scenarios' to custom-designed scenarios and challenges that metaphor challenges that teams face in the real world. these types of scenarios require team members to contemplate, consider and make critical decisions as a team. Fun and fantasy are a large part of these types of scenarios, helping to promote participant enthusiasm and full participation. In many cases, these types of activities include 'building requirements' where teams actually create a tangible end result that represents their success.

 

Business Simulations

Business Simulations have many of the same aspects of Team Problem Simulations, but the key focus here is on real world business simulations. Delta can offer one of many standardized business simulations or work with you on to custom-design a simulation that focuses specifically on the nuances of challenge and teamwork that your staff face in their daily real world interactions.

 

Customized Role-Playing Scenarios

Role-playing has been a staple of business and development for decades. When Delta creates and delivers role-playing scenarios as part of an overall training process, we focus on developing scenarios that are relevant to your specific organization. The primary objective of using role-playing is to develop new skills in the participants, and then give them an opportunity to practise those skills before leaving the training environment. One of the most valuable aspects of role-playing is reflecting back, reviewing and evaluating role-playing performance to draw out Key Learning about how new interactive skills can be best used in the real world business environment.

 

Improvisation In Business

Improv is by definition a performance art form with no script on preparation. The improvisers on the spot make up story lines and dialogue. While actors and playwrights have long used improvisation as an important training and script development tool respectively, the use of exercises and activities imported from the theatrical environment to the business one is still relatively new. When considering the use of improvisation outside the realm of theatre, it is useful to note that, compared to traditional acting; it is arguably less of a talent and more of a skill. In other words, it is relatively easy to teach the basic tools and skills of improv to 'non-actors'. Those skills are of particular relevance to us in business since many of them (cooperation, acceptance, creativity, etc.) are precisely the behaviours that we seek to encourage.
