Escape the predictable.

Use when you want to make clever, practical, and original use of existing resources.



Compelling hacks of existing resources and solutions that might prove easier to execute

Step 1
Introduce the MacGyver Drill.

Step 2
Have each team randomly select three resources from their Asset Jam Poster.

Step 3
Ask the group how many people know who MacGyver is. If there are people who do not know MacGyver, introduce him.

Step 4
Inform Wrong Thinkers that like MacGyver, they have limited resources and can only use the three to solve their challenge.

Step 5
Ask teams to come up with as many solutions as they can using only the three resources they have selected.

If you have time, add an element of play by blindfolding a member of each team before they pull their assets off the Asset Jam Poster. Assign a guide to each blindfolded teammate to ensure safety of all Wrong Thinkers.
