Few people, lots of requests, lots of expectations regarding tasks that need to be finished by unrealistic timelines… how can we obtain the best results from a team? Quality Jam explores aspects created by the need to use specialized skills and abilities within a team, by finishing multiple, interconnected tasks, by evaluating and prioritising tasks, managing interruptions, focusing on personal and team priorities, transfer of information and skills.

Participants are divided into three subgroups and have responsibility over their own tasks and the task given to the team they are a part of.

Everyone has access to unique pieces that are necessary to finish their own tasks and the tasks of the other teams. These pieces represent the specific property of an individual; they are given and cannot be transferred or manipulated by another individual in any of the stages of the activity. The teams must agree on a unified work style so that they can distribute human resources and effectively manage the alloted time for tasks.
