A marshmallow, some strings, a little bit of tape, some spaghetti and a team
Yesterday, after our delivery, I took the time to perform the Marshmallow challenge with a team of project managers and a team of developers. It’s an interesting exercise since:
1. It only takes 30 minutes
2. It explains a lot of challenges during a project
3. It exposes the team feeling
4. It’s fun & easy.
What I did was simply viewing this TED video, setting up the challenge and then showed the film for the participants. If only everything in life was this easily executed.
