Group Training Exercise


I need to find the group training exercise which asks people to consider what items they would keep when their plane crashes in the desert.

The purpose of the exercise is to show that “the sum of the whole is greater than its parts” by demonstrating through a relatively short exercise that we work better as a team.

This will be used as part of a project management training course in an organisation introducing matrix management. Any suggestions on where to source this exercise, or a simple, short, comparable exercise are gratefully received.

Thanks in advance for your inputs.
