Reversal is an excellent team building activity to assess individual ability and strengths, along with leadership skills and the ability to delegate responsibility accordingly under strict time pressure.
The activity provides the conditions under which all individuals can do their best work, when managing a remote task as a team.

Reversal is a very simple concept that is much more difficult to carry out than it might appear!
A complex 3D model can only be viewed by team members for very limited periods of time within a task time frame. Every member of the team needs to bring information back from the model in order to recreate a completely accurate 2D plan... easy if you have great visual memory and spatial awareness, but more demanding if you are challenged by a set of flat-pack furniture assembly instructions!

In order to be successful teams need a shared strategy, appropriate responsibility delegation and good discipline.
They need clear and specific instructions about their responsibilities, precise and effective time management and a shared process for recording information as it arrives.


  • Develop an understanding of how to effectively delegate to use the resources of individual team members in task achievement
  • Explore the impact of time pressure and quality standards on individual and team performance
  • Identify ways of creating flexible operational plans that can be adapted to cope with change and uncertainty
  • Recognise the importance of creating effective communication systems and sharing and analysing information within these systems Encourage on-going reflection and review as part of a learning process in complex problem solving

At its simplest, Reversal is an excellent team building activity. It quickly shows differences in personal styles, levels of confidence and the ability to support each other within the team requiring basic project planning skills.

Reversal™ requires a team to make really efficient use of their individual skills and the limited time available to them to solve a problem that is only viewed by one team member at a time. The exercise requires the team to collect and then use a large volume of visual information to prepare a complex diagram. Some individuals will find the task much easier than others, so identifying ability and confidence within each team member is fundamental to building a successful plan.

However, the exercise is particularly valuable for use in supervisory and leadership skills training or to challenge anyone who needs to allocate workloads, monitor performance, build confidence and capability in team members and keep to time deadlines.
