Three teams each construct a CataPult, a device that projects balls at a wide range of angles and trajectories over a maximum range of up to ten metres. This multifaceted tool can be used in a broad range of areas and is particularly suitable for optimizing performance in organisations, improving cooperation, or also within the broader context of CIP/Lean/Six Sigma. When it comes to training and coaching organisations and teams, CataPults is the new Tool that hits the target every time.
How It’s Done
Cooperation: the three teams position themselves in the room in a triangular form so that each team can fire their balls at each other. Each team constructs a
receptacle (such as from flipchart paper) to catch balls fired their way. They get a specific number of points for each ball that reaches the target. However, the catching team also gets points. This version is best suited for teams and organisations where balance and cooperation within systems play an important role. CIP/Lean/Six Sigma: the countless variables on the CataPult influence the quality of each projected ball as well as the distance it travels. These variables need to be analysed in order to make sure each individual shot is correct and replicable. An irreplaceable tool for optimising CIP such as in the context of Six Sigma trainings. Scrambled eggs: when you want to offer your teams something a little out of the ordinary, get them to construct a catching receptacle for eggs out of flipchart paper. The aim: each egg is to be caught unbroken. But first they must optimise the CataPult’s settings with the aid of test shots. Then it’s time to fire the first egg … This is the version with outdoor event character.
