Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
Competencies – Leadership, communication, planning, problem solving, teamwork
This challenging yet exciting VR application is used when you really want to put your teams through their paces and see how people perform under a little bit of pressure. The goal being to highlight how people in challenging circumstances can behave in real work situations.
Teams have to defuse a series of bombs, they each take turns to enter the bomb room and are faced with increasingly complex devices. They are totally reliant on their teammates who have the various manuals to guide and help them.
If teams don’t work together in clever ways they always run out of time, so it can be very rewarding for them as they slowly improve and start to defuse these devices.
This VR activity is also very cognitively challenging so we usually recommend a lighter VR experience afterwards to allow participants to recover and re-energise.
See the video below for an example how this application works.
