The Waste Game: a team exercise to reduce “time waste” in business

Just before Covid changed the rules I was developing a new team exercise, for our Hyper Island team in Stockholm, to explore how a group could identify and discuss how much of our work time is often wasted.  This complements the work we did on our Digital Action Cards and today I decided I should publish this so that people can give me some feedback.

The game is in two parts; first we work out how much of a work week is “wasted” and then we discuss what we mean by wasted and how we might solve some of these issues in our own work.

Feel free to download The Waste Game and adapt it for your own use.  I’m using Create Commons as our license for this work and would appreciate a link back if you do use it.
