What happens in The Infinite Loop?
In the Infinite Loop, the real world collides with the virtual world as your team embarks on a powerful mission in The Infinite Loop. Using virtual reality (VR) technology, teams will compete against each other to find clues to retrieve the prisoner and bring him back into the real world. One team member at a time wears the VR headset to describe the virtual world, while the teammates in the real world have the solutions, comprised of a set of lock modules, which open the doors of different rooms using the White Hats Guide Book. Just when they think they are done, they are pushed to a second level and must go through the same rooms with more complicated lock systems. The game’s objective is to create competition between teams, with a main screen showcasing the evolution of multiple teams in one game session.
Learning & Development Outcomes
The Infinite Loop is a strong lean management business game, based on real-time collaboration, and real-time communication. The more precise the player in the virtual world is in describing the problem, the faster the teammates in the real world find the solution. Interactive learning, combined with continuous feedback, and improvement, makes the teams solve problems in more efficient ways. The Infinite Loop is a versatile, and powerful tool for a debriefing on complex issues affecting modern businesses working with remote teams, employing agile methodologies.
