The aim to to build the tallest free standing structure in 15-20 mins. The process is what I find the most interesting. Who are the vocal leaders? Who are the quiet leaders? Who are nominated? Who nominated themselves? Who are the thinkers then doers? Who are the doers then thinkers? Whiners encouragement? Who needs further direction? There's are just a few of the questions that go through my mind.
