Take Stock.

Use when you want to make the most out of resources already available to you. 

 


Outcomes

  • Recognition that there is much more to work with

Materials
Sharpies
Post-its
Butcher paper
Blue tape



Instructions

Step 1
Introduce the Asset Jam Drill.

Step 2
Have Wrong Thinkers place their new challenge, moonshot, or emerging solution (depending on your focus) at the center of their Asset Jam Poster. 

Step 3
Have teams use Post-its to identify the resources available to solve with.

Step 4
[Optional]
Use two colors of Post-its to distinguish between currently available resources and additional resources that might be required.

Step 5
[Optional]
The Big Jam: Have teams rotate to the team location to their right. Ask one Wrong Thinker per team to stay behind to explain their idea(s) to other teams as they rotate through and build on available (and required) assets. Rotate teams every 60 seconds until they are back to their team home.

A helpful tip:
Asset Jam can also be run as a group drill. We have used large sheets of butcher paper to create a giant Asset Jam Poster by hand.
