After lunch, people can become lethargic. To combat this we decided to introduce an activity that would get people moving whilst demonstrating the key methodology to QI: baseline, learn, apply learning, and measure impact – repeat

We ask delegates to build a paper plane using the same paper and fly their plane. (video below)

We tasked them to learn how to make the flight longer by asking others what they did and apply this learning to making another plane and fly again (video below)

We asked them did the plane fly further the second tie round? Although it was fun, with some ‘friendly’ competition, this activity was a great way to demonstrate QI.
