FIND THE SEQUENCE© is a challenging communication exercise. It is brilliant as a supplement to your existing Crew Resource Management or Human Factors training course. It is flexible as it can be used for groups from 4 to a maximum of 20 persons working together. It has been designed for CRM and Human Factors training in aviation and can be played by a mix of people in various job functions e.g. cabin crew, flight crew, technicians, engineers. But it can easily be adapted to office or even managerial staff.
Each participant in the group is given one or more pictures. It is now up to the group to find a logical sequence in which the pictures must be placed. It requires that each group member communicates effectively. And a high level of effective listening is of the utmost importance to be successful in this communication exercise. Each of the 20 pictures contain many details and have been designed in a way in which confusion and assumptions may surface. When the group believes to have found the correct sequence pictures must be placed in the correct order.
FIND THE SEQUENCE© also links to other CRM topics like; effective communication inside and outside the flight crew compartment, leadership, co-operation, synergy, team behaviour, decision-making, and individual and team responsibilities. It equally underlines that knowledge and good use of questioning techniques is important for effective communication and information gathering. To take the game and the debriefing to even higher levels we suggest our lesson plan: Questioning Techniques 1
