New mini version....same big impact on learning!

Mini Sequencer is a portable group problem solving exercise, where participants need to replicate a diagram by constructing pieces of plywood. It is made from durable and lightweight plywood, and is now perfect for travelling to training sessions and events due to the new even smaller size and the portability of the new carry tube which can often fit in the overhead on many airlines.

Sequencer requires close co-operation, strong leadership and excellent communication skills between members, as well as a clear allocation of team roles.

Team members are required to work out how to assemble a set of different wooden plywood pieces to make a structure which is identical to the design pattern/diagram they have received.

Following the initial construction period the group then have to reassemble the pieces against the clock to see if they can they produce sufficient process improvement from construction to achieve the challenging time trial.

Sequencer is also available in two other sizes:

Sequencer Standard (122cm) and

Sequencer Tabletop (91cm)

  • Planning and implementation process by planning an initial process for gathering detailed information to construct the structure
  • Using trial and error as well as a detailed recording system to identify and sort plywood components
  • Time management for completing the structure under a strict time pressure
  • Problem solving skills
  • Effective instruction and delegation of responsibilities between team members
  • Being able to improve performance by finding effective systems and procedures for constructing the structure in a shorter time frame
  • Supervisory leadership

This activity is also known as Planks, Gridlock, Perplexity, Puzzled Proper, Shelving, or Cycle Time.

Sequencer is an exercise which makes great demands on teamwork!

Team members are required to work out how to assemble a set of different wooden plywood pieces to make a structure which is identical to the design pattern/diagram they have received.
It requires close cooperation, strong leadership and excellent communication skills between members, as well as a clear delegation of team roles.

There is only one way in which the pieces will fit correctly. Pieces should not be forced. Correct positioning allows the joints to fit without distortion of the shape. As there is only one answer to the problem, this has to be established through a process of trial and error. Detailed planning at this stage is ineffective as the theories must be tested in practice at an early stage.
Once the assembly is complete, the team must develop and rehearse a strategy for taking the structure to pieces and re-building it accurately against the clock. As the pieces cannot be marked or pre-sorted they need to have a well-developed plan for identifying components and using manpower efficiently if they are to succeed.

 

15x Individual Plywood components - largest piece is 61cm (2 feet), Facilitator manual and carry case.
