Activity background
We’ve created new backgrounds for your Metaphor activities. Many of you already use the speedboat version. Now try out the hot air balloon and the rocket!

Working with a boat analogy, participants explore what helps a team to advance toward its objectives, and what slows it down. This highly accessible approach encourages the group to explicitly identify the project’s strengths, weaknesses, goals and hurdles.

With the hot air balloon Metaphor, you discuss the same topics as the speedboat, using only the impediments and drivers. The hot air balloon analogy is a simple activity for implementing continuous improvement within your team. It’s a great switch up from the speedboat and a nice way to add a new dimension to your meetings, something that’s essential to keep people from getting bored.

Try out the rocket Metaphor, a collaborative activity for discussing strategic topics. Get a different perspective with the Beekast rocket and work as a team on transformation issues: describe your strategies and the initiatives to set up (Earth), your methods like teams and skills (Rocket) and finally, the objectives (Moon), which are your strategic challenges.
