The Webmaster® activity uses collaboration between teams to develop time management skills through effective communication, planning processes, and time restrictions. The design is intended to create opportunities for participants to focus on solving problems under pressure and using effective communication, planning, and monitoring to adhere to the time frame to improve performance. With the versatility to have small or large groups, ranging between 6–16 people involved, this is an exercise that can be used either in or outdoors and takes only 30–60 minutes to assemble a black and white diagram using colored ropes with specific rules they must adhere to. Once the diagram is completed, they are then asked to re-do the whole diagram again, under a strict time frame.
Collaboration between teams, time management, and effective planning is key in most workplace environments, and Webmaster is the ideal activity to gain a real insight into how individuals and teams work together for mutual success — from group leaders assigned to work projects to senior executives tasked with launching organizational initiatives.
