How to organize a field team to solve a problem

  1. Pick a speaker. The first person who volunteers gets to be the speaker. They recieve the Speaker badge. They now act like a dungeon master of the group. He has the final say on who gets to speak and how long they get to speak. He is the authority that tells people what to do, when and why. The speaker can give the position to anyone at any time. A 50% vote can remove the speaker. The speaker’s seat cannot be vacant. The speaker draws his authority from the consentual agreement all players made by sitting down at the game and putting their piece on the board. Any member can leave at any time for any reason. The speaker is also the primary point of contact for recieving and conveying information between other groups and the public. But any member can speak to anyone whenever and about whatever they want.
  2. Once all the players are at the board and have placed their avatar on the board the speaker asks a question.: He says, “What is the question we’re here to ask?”
  3. Each player provides an answer. Every player can take broad liberties in how they answer the question, but the question must be clear.
  4. When everyone has submitted their final answer the group gets to see everyone’s answer.
  5. The group identifies as many patterns in their answers as they can and turns in their answers to the host.
  6. Everyone gets to look at everyone’s answers.
  7. The process is repeated until agreement on the answer is achieved.
  8. When consensus is achieved the host will refine the answer into a written statement and will seek the turn-based agreement to refine the final answer.
  9. When a final answer has been agreed upon and written down one of the team members will design a symbol for the question. One of the team members will make a piece for the symbol and put it on the center of the board. The question’s symbol piece on the board solidifies each member’s resolve to be a part of the problem solving processs and to do their best to work as a team member to accomplish a shared goal.
  10. Once the question’s symbol piece has been put on the board and everyone has acknowledge the significance of the event, the host will ask the following question: “What are the variables in the equation.”
  11. Each member will make a list of every variable in the equation they can think of.
  12. They turn in their final answers to the host.
  13. Everyone analyzes everyone else’s answers and looks for patterns and holes in the analysis.
  14. The host refines everyone’s answers in a turn-based manner until everyone is in agreement on a final answer.
  15. They make pieces symbolizing each of the fundamental aspects of the problem.
  16. The host asks, “How do we solve this problem?”
  17. Every member writes down answers and hand them to the host.
  18. Everyone looks at everyone else’s answers.
  19. Everyone looks for patterns and holes in the answers.
  20. The host refines everyone’s answers in a turn-based manner until everyone is in agreement on a final answer.
  21. The host asks, “What questions aren’t we asking?”
  22. Everyone writes down their answers, turns them in and everyone looks at them. This goes around until everyone is in agreement to move forward.
  23. They create a symbol and a piece for their call to action to solve the problem.
  24. The host asks, “What part will each of you play in solving the problem?”
  25. Everyone submits their answer to be analyzed using the turn-based method.
  26. The host asks, “What is the first thing you are going to do to solve the problem.
  27. Everyone submits their answers to be analyzed using the turn-based method.
  28. After everyone has submitted their final answer the team breaks, and each player does not return to the board until they have completed their quest.
  29. The process repeats itself until the final goal is accomplished.
