    Hey Mark, I love the sound of this activity. I’m wondering what your thoughts might be if I were to use a full deck and brun four teams of 8 to 10 at a time. I’m thinking you could follow the same general flow, except the switching of cards could either be within the mini team or within the whole team.
    What do you think?

      Jen, yes, I think you could set up the activity this way. My only concern would be that thru the lens of ‘continuous improvement’ it would be best for each group to manage the same set of cards each time because they would then have a consistent benchmark. Have fun, and let us know how it goes 🙂
