Virtual Murder Mystery |
Think Sherlock Holmes. The one in the novels, the RDJ movies or the BBC Benedict Cumberbatch Sherlock Holmes. Just like Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson, your team has to solve the murder mystery using clues left behind in the crime scene. Virtually embark on similar adventures with your team to figure out who the culprit is. Will your team and you be able to figure out who the murderer is before he escapes or would you be unsuccessful in that?
How Virtual Murder Mystery adds value to team?
The team members need to plan each step forward and do their tasks accordingly. Without planning the team members will be lost as to how they would move forward with their investigation. Without planning at the workplace, the projects or even small tasks will be a lost cause as the next step would be unclear and there wouldn’t be a clear and collective focus of the team. This activity helps the members to get more familiar with the planning, understand its importance and learn how and where they can improve in planning - task management, time management, short-term and long term goals, target determination, strategic direction and process monitoring amongst other things.
Time Management
This activity demands the murder be solved before the guilty can escape and flee. In order to do that, the members need to perform well in a limited time and catch the correct suspect. Underperformance is also frequent while in a time constraint. This activity gives a sense of that urgency and helps the members of the team in understanding the urgency of the tasks and how they should be done correctly under the limited time available.
Out of The Box Thinking
Sherlock Holmes and Dr John H. Watson could have never been able to solve any of these cases if not for their creative thinking and analytical skills. The members of the team need to think creatively in order to bring justice. The same way, they need to think of ideas that others wouldn’t think of, in order to stay ahead in and of the competition. In a competitive world like this, no one is going to buy your product if it doesn’t have anything different than the thousand others that offer the exact same thing. This activity helps in exactly that as it activated the creative side of the employees.
Problem Solving
This is pretty straightforward. There is a problem: there is been a murder and justice has to be served. Solution: catching the murderer. While figuring out what the problem and the solution are can be quite simple, getting there is very complex. And there are a lot of things to consider: was it surely a murder or what is suicide? Were there murderers or was it just one? There are a hundred ways to getting to that solution, but the team needs to come up with one that is ideal, ethical and solves the murder in the least time. At the workplace, defining the problem is almost always easy as they come up to the teams in form of obstacles. But finding the best solution through the right methods - that is what is required and that is what this activity works on.
Sherlock Holmes wouldn’t be able to solve the murders the same way if it wasn’t for Dr John H. Watson. While Sherlock has the powerful science of deduction, he needs John for his sensitivity and understanding of human nature. Just like that, the team isn’t complete and functional until all the members are contributing their skills and inputs to the project. The team members need to work in a way that all of them participate in communication, sharing of ideas, improvisation and planning for great outcomes, as each member is valuable to the team.
