The Marshmallow Challenge

Today is the official term start for the MA Fashion Business Management course.

We had an introductory lecture for Managing Creative Teams in the Fashion Business.

We were separated into 6 groups for this module for the group project.

We played a game called "The Marshmallow Challenge" which was introduced from the Ted Talk.

The challenge was to build the tallest tower in 18min. Each group of 5 were given 20 spaghettis, a string, a bit of celetape and a marshmallow to be placed on the top. The tower has to be free to be lifted, not stuck to the table.

It sounds simple, but it's not as easy as you think. The spaghetti is quite weak and easy to break. Unfortunately, our group did not manage to have a stable tower. However, it was fun, and a way to get to work with the group mates immediately.

From my observation I still cannot see too much each group member's personality and ability. I just hope we will be able to work well together for this module.

That's it for today! I am gonna work ob case study now. If you like my blog posts, please come back again, a please follow me on Facebook www.facebook.com/dressupshopaholic
