Instructions
  1. Each participant should have a piece of paper.
  2. Once the problem has been introduced, ask participants to think about how the problem might be solved and have them draw several items that pop into their heads.
  3. Continue the exercise by having your participants draw the problem as a whole on a new piece of paper. (No one is judged on their drawing skills, the drawing will simply help in explaining later.)
  4. When everyone is done, have a group discussion on the different solutions.
