Video Conferencing Team Building
Video Conferencing Team Building requires TeamWorx to be flexible in adapting to the software each client is already using.
Today we delivered three events on three different video conferencing platforms.
Zoom and Slack – Who Stole Anti Matter
DeepMap does HD mapping and localization for safe autonomy – detailed maps for autonomous vehicles. Heavy on engineering folks. We worked with a team of about 16 people, and used Zoom to establish a shared general room, and two breakout rooms team rooms.
Thank you Wayne and Jeff for introducing Who Stole Anti Matter to us. It is the best remote team building we could ask for. We had a lot of fun solving the mystery, everyone was involved and contributed, it was truly a team effort!
We met in the general room and introduced the event. On the shared general channel we posted a brief and team roles documents days before the event. Participants could access these in advance if they wanted, and also during the introduction.
The teams discussed the case inside their team rooms, and used a private team channel in Slack to document and organize evidence.
Each team had a coach and unlimited access to interrogate suspects. They proposed narratives, and confirmed or disconfirmed them with evidence, and in the end produced a solid case to prove who stole the antimatter!
Zoom – Speed Teams
New England Donor Services coordinates organ and tissue donation in the six New England states and Bermuda. They are a fun and unique group. We had about 20 people and 4 teams for a Speed Teams– widji puzzles – event.
We had a great time on Friday! A lot of laughs from the group and a great opportunity to use our brains in a different way. Jeff and Wayne did a great job, and we appreciate you giving us the opportunity to pull this together at the last minute.
Zoom is our favorite platform for this event as it is easy to join and effortless to distribute the document each round and then automatically go to our breakout rooms.
We spent just over an hour, with more people joining on the fly, and completed 5 rounds of competition.
Google Meet and Slack – Who Stole Anti-Matter
Coinbase is a digital currency exchange headquartered in San Francisco, California. They broker exchanges of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Tezos, and many others, with fiat currencies in approximately 32 countries, and bitcoin transactions and storage in 190 countries worldwide. Super cutting edge!
They used Google Meet to create 4 teams of about 6 people each, and a shared room. We all met in the shared room, and then teams convened to their team rooms to debate the case.
Each team created an imaginative and plausible narrative of what happened – which is truly the point of the activity – that being said, some teams used evidence expertly to get closer to the actual series of events. They all chose “Who did it” correctly, so in the end the planet was most likely saved.
A huge thank you to all of our clients for challenging us to adapt and giving us the opportunity for success!
