It's Salsa Time! A Team Activity
Crowne, Kerri Anne
Management Teaching Review, v2 n4 p289-298 Dec 2017
This article provides information on a team-building activity in which student teams make salsa. I usually use this exercise on the day that I form teams to provide an opportunity for teams to work on something that is not graded prior to completing the graded team assignment. The activity is built on several theories, such as social learning, experiential learning, and constructivist theory. The goal of the activity is to allow team members to get acquainted with each other and quickly go through the team development process. It is a springboard for discussing many aspects of teams, such as tacit knowledge, decision making, creativity, and resource allocation. It has primarily been used in an undergraduate leadership course but may be applicable to other courses.
