  • 1. Outdoor Exercise Outline NALDS 2004Computer CodeLocation Workshop Room OR another room with enough spaceMaterial needed Object; plastic cup; bottle; 2 ropes of 4 m; robe of 10 m for the circleTime schedule 5 min Briefing + 30 min Action + 20 min DebriefingPreparationObjective Creativity, teamwork, strategy creation, adaptive thinking, roledistribution, challenge of value systems (e.g. Conflict between qualityof work and speed, safety & success)Remarks for facilitator • The delegates should repeat this exercise with DIFFERENTpatterns to test new strategies against new problems.• The delegates wait out of site of the exercise, while the facilitatorarranges the exercise. The facilitator must have the ability tochange the patterns, without the delegates seeing.• Use the string to define the activity area and place the plates(paper) randomly inside the activity area, so that the numbers canbe seen.• The distance between the starting line and the activity area mustbe far enough, so that the delegates can’t recognize the numberson the plates (e.g. behind a wall)• There must not always be 50 plates (pieces of paper). Perhaps 30are enough for your small group (~4 plates for each person).• As another variation, certain numbers (e.g. 3 & 27) can beremoved as an additional element to see, how your delegatesrespond.• The facilitator may also place plates in a non-random manner totest if their delegates can detect a pattern and react accordingly.• The facilitator could also assign a delegate as the person to watchfor mistakes and breaks in the rules.• Often the delegates will remain behind the startline/endline for along time because they are afraid of beginning the countdown.However, sometimes in life one is not able to plan in advance andmust simply run into the situation to know how to best react.• Perhaps the delegates should release themselves from the timepressure and better focus on changes of perspectives for betterplanning, “Thinking out of the box”. Perhaps it’s more important totry something new, rather than always sticking to efficiency andthe accepted “best” solution.Security Instructions • The risk of injury is minimumAIESEC in Germany
  • 2. Outdoor Exercise Outline NALDS 2004ExerciseInstructions to read out– repeat as often asrequired!Read out loud:“Your computer has the worse computer virus yet known to man andtime is running out. Fortunately you have developed a program todestroy the virus, but you must enter the correct computer code intime or all of your team’s document will be deleted and the virus willbe spread. The virus countdown is activated by motion detectors! Theentire group must always begin behind the startline/endline, but assoon as the startline/endline is crossed, the virus countdown begins.Once the correct computer code is entered, it only activates andsaves your computer from the virus, once everyone again crosses thestartline/endline.The virus is very dangerous and also has pressure detectors,therefore, only one ONE person can risk to be in the computerkeypad at a time, but all members are safe to stand around the edgesof the keypad. If more than one person enters the keypad area, thevirus calculates a time penalty.The computer code must be activated by touching each number padIN ORDER from 1-50. If a number is activated in the wrong order, thevirus calculates a time penalty.The keypads are fixed in their positions and are therefore notmovable.Be careful, the virus is VERY adaptable and may reactivate itself!Therefore, you may be required to repeat the computer code up to 5times. Oh no! The virus has just been activated! You must now enterthe correct computer code as fast as possible.Diagram:AIESEC in GermanyActivity Area (randomly place plates)Startline/Endline
  • 3. Outdoor Exercise Outline NALDS 2004DebriefingFocus 1: strategyand creativity• How did the strategy evolve? Who was involved developing it?• How did you agree on the strategy?• How was the strategy optimised?• How did your strategy change when faced with new problems?• What was your team goal? What other goals are involved in thisactivity?• What did you have to sacrifice in order to reach your goal? (eg.Safety, creativity, common understanding, complete involvement,etc.)• How did you observe the rules?• Which real-life situation does this resemble?Focus 2:Communication &conflicts & values• How did you decide on a strategy?• Which conflicts did you observe, when discussing, which strategyto choose?• Which personal or team values where behind these conflicts• Which type of communication styles were observed in the group?(Dictating, demanding, questioning, etc..)• What type of barrier was the startline/endling?• How long did you remain behind the startline/endline?• How ready were you to simply accept the consequences ofstarting the countdown?Golden Rule /Key LearningPointAIESEC in Germany
