THE SWARM EXPERIENCE
In a darkened conference room, a cheering crowd is waving cards in the air. Each card is red on one side and green on the other. In the huge auditorium, a camera scans the thrilled party and redirects the information to a computer. The computer counts the amount of green and red cards and uses the information to control the software. As soon as a participant flips a card and shows the other color, the computer registers the change – 10 times per second. All participants act like one big joystick. The whole crowd stares at the canvas in front of it, where a computer game is displaying their own performance. Combined with an exciting and uplifting keynote about the functioning and applications of collective intelligence, the swarm experiment is a fascinating empirical and cognitive learning experience that sticks with the participants hearts.
The spontaneously arising feeling of belonging together will go beyond your expectations and imaginations.
LEARNINGS AND TAKE AWAYS
Many companies change to more agility. But only few can deliver unique measurable agile results like the 1492 group in its projects. The Swarm Experience demonstrates the secret of success in collaboration. The unique large group event is an experience where participants gain knowledge while doing it. The collective task encourages by showing the principles of intelligent collective in action. It transforms groups into agile, resilient and flexible organisms, as the experiment shows how to leap forward by accelerating the speed of processing information in real time.
- Mind blowing coordination, collaboration and innovation.
- Ultimate feeling of belonging together.
- Experience of the wisdom of the group for exponential challenges.
- Using diversity, transparency and real-time feedback to master autonomy.
The Swarm Experience can be performed with large groups starting from 30 up to 3000 participants and beyond. Any audience can participate in the Swarm Experience without leaving the conference room. We just need the ordinary conference technique, LCD projectors and a sound systems similar to a keynote speech and chairs in conference setting, tables or even standing is an option. The format could be designed to your needs and the airplane can be labeled with your corporate design or the credo of the meeting. The Swarm Experience could be compressed into a 60-minute format, or be a full day contact.
