The concept behind the activity
It often takes a lot of people to get a task done. As an experienced team worker, you will know that it is essential to hand a task over in the proper manner. Pipeline is an exciting learning project full of action for your participants. It is also an excellent metaphor for the communication flow and transfer processes within organisations.
Facilitating the activity
The ball symbolizes a project that the group members have to work together on. The group’s task is to transport the ball over a certain distance from one point to another without actually touching it. The only way to move the ball is to use the Pipeline – a system of halved plastic pipes – according to previously agreed rules. How will they manage to get the project done? For this fast and exciting activity, coordination and cooperation within the group are the keys to success.
