Cycle Time

An intense challenge that thoroughly tests a group’s ability to solve complex problems. Participants examine a diagram and are challenged to replicate it using the custom-made, wooden puzzle pieces. At first, the task seems simple. However, as the group proceeds, participants discover that the task requires much more than just assembling the boards to match the diagram. To achieve a successful outcome with this activity, the group must work well together as a team.
