    i will be putting together a six sigma team and i have never been a team leader on this scale. I’m looking for some team activities that can be fun and good practice that i can spend a little bit of time on in some meetings. Anybody have any suggestions (besides the helicopter!) for activites or maybe a book of six sigma related activities? My goal is to have TEAMS work on them and for it to be fun and interesting. I want it to seem less like an excersise and more like a reward. thanks for your help

    Just to share with you. Few days back I came across a BOOK at Amazon.com. It was a pocket reference guide for building and motivating  six sigma teams. (I’ve lost the bookmark)
    (More, it was a spiral binded pocket reference, kind of…)
    May be you can look for the same.

    Hi,
    I recently used this book
    Teamwork and Teamplay : Games and Activities for Building and Training Teams by Sivasailam “Thiagi” Thiagarajan, Glenn Parker (Paperback ) Avg. Customer Rating:
    It has basic team building activities and you can find some which will fit for Six Sigma…at the end of the day its the basic Team Concept which will help your team to work not the Six Sigma related games/activities….
    Just my 2 cents!
    send me a mail on [email protected] and I will send you some games you may like…
    Regards,
    JA

    I have a copy of the “Rath & Strong’s Six Sigma Team Pocket Guide” and find that it is a real help with understanding team roles and dynamics. It does not give any team building exercises. For that, I flipped through “1001 Team Building Exercises”. Every reference I’ve consulted (both book and person) stresses the importance of making team building a high priority. The key is to build connections that are outside of the project (family, hobbies, etc) that will show other team members an individual’s priorities, personality and untapped skills. My team is mostly women. Women like to talk. At each meeting, we take 5 minutes and talk about “Your Best…day, dream job, vacation, etc.” Many of the players on the team have known each other for years, but this little 5 minute exercise really sheds new light on old relationships.
    Good Luck!
