A QUICK SUMMARY OF “People Bingo!”
WHAT IS IT? People Bingo! is an energiser involving communication and teamwork. It’s fun, energetic and upbeat, and it creates a tangible result and a great buzz. HOW DOES IT WORK? The individual has to plan and then get signatures of colleagues in agreement with the statement questions. WHAT’S THE POINT? Typically individuals approach this energiser haphazardly, they then begin to realise that they could use a plan and a strategy to succeed. They need to consider how innovative or traditional they want to be in their approach to the task, and they have to be very aware of time limits. If reviewed, individuals may recognise a number of ways they can improve the way they work together. This may include planning, communication, innovation, creativity etc. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE? As facilitator, you will need around 5 minutes to set up the room. The activity will take around 15-20 minutes to run, including the de-brief session.

People Bingo!
Facilitators Guide BACKGROUND TO THE CHALLENGE This Individual energiser has its origins in innovation and creativity, probably originating from a party game. Participants can have some fun together, whilst learning about how they perform independently and collectively through this activity. This can enable them to approach the task in a highly creative way if they choose and not be boxed in by traditional methods.

STEP 6. EVALUATING THE CHALLENGE
For our main challenges we offer both Action Planning and Evaluation suggestions, for this energiser both are probably unnecessary . ACTION PLANNING Some individuals within the team may find it useful to complete a simple action plan, simply to record what they have learned about themselves and as a prompt for them when they get back to work. For those teams that choose to use action planning, we have included an action-planning template on the CD enclosed with your pack. If you choose to use action plans, simply print as many copies as you need from the enclosed CD. EVALUATION You may choose to evaluate the activity each time you run it to help you monitor the effectiveness of the task.
