People who play LinkXs often discover that they have deeply rooted beliefs and opinions about cooperation and other issues that have a huge influence on their work, such as communication and leadership. People are often hardly aware of the forces that influence these issues in their lives and they are therefore hardly ever discussed. LinkXs provides a framework for analyzing team cooperation in a thorough and versatile way and enables the clearing of any blockages, should this be found to be necessary.
Who is it for
LinkXs is designed to practice self-organization, communication and cooperation. LinkXs is all about attitudes and skills and can be played by people of diverse educational or professional levels. It is important that the players already have some form of collaboration in their workplace. The game can be used in various situations, for instance as part of a larger program, but is also excellent for use as a group activity on its own.
How does LinkXs work
LinkXs is played in groups of eight to twelve players, divided into four subgroups. Each subgroup gets two tasks, which have to be completed. The know-how and the means to complete the tasks are divided up and spread out over the whole group. Subgroups therefore have only access to partial information, and must acquire what they are missing. Communication between the subgroups is set up in such a way that the game facilitator can easily observe without being too intrusive.
